Is it normal for cycles to be extra long (and possibly irregular) after having a baby? I had DS in July 10 and had what I thought was my first period July 11. Now it is 43 days later and no sign of my period - I used have cycles 26-31 days long pre baby. I took a pregnancy test and got a negative result. I'm still breastfeeding and quite a bit actually... all of my books are still packed because we just moved. I guess, I'm just wondering if this happened to anyone else. I kind of thought that once I got a period, I would cycle "normally" again.
It is normal to have delayed ovulation postpartum, especially the first cycle. That cycle can be quite long for some women. It can take around 6 cycles or more to regulate. I am on my 3rd cycle since I got my postpartum AF and noticed a changed in each cycle since it has returned, each one getting closer to my normal.
Mom to three great boys Michael (Sept/01), Carter (Nov/05) and Reid (March/10).
