My son is 18 months old and I had my first period a little over a month ago. I am now on period number three!
After I went thru puberty my cycles were generally 36-45 days long and my bleeding was heavy w/o cramps. Then I induced lactation and my cycles went to every 50-60 days.
Then I had my son.
My first period happened- was CRAMPY and moderate in heavyness.
THEN 22 days later I had ANOTHER period. It was light.
NOW, 18 days later I am starting ANOTHER. I don't get it. I must have O'd right after the bleeding stopped. OR EVEN when I was bleeding. I practice NFP, so this is sorta stressfull- I probably had unprotected sex around that time.
This feels like it's not me. I feel like some fertility gnome is taking over my womanhood. Does my body really want to get pregnant right now? Am I going to revert to my previous normal?
I feel like I'm experiencing puberty all over again. I don't know what to expect.
