Period after breastfeeding
My baby is about 5 months old I breastfeed for the first 3 months. I still have not had a period yet. Is this strange. Should I call my doctor? I had my tubes tide in November.
This is still within normal limits. Your hormones are still not back to the pre-pregnant state, but still need a little more time.
