Before having my first baby, I had cycles that ranged from 29-34 days. I would always be able to tell when I was ovulating as well as which side (L or R) based on cramping during mid-cycle, and I always PMS symptoms such as cramping/bloating/breast soreness 2 days or so before my period was due.
After giving birth (I did not breast feed) my periods started a month later and have been all over the place…. ranging anywhere from 28 days up to 40 days. I don’t feel ovulation as much at all anymore and I no longer get PMS symptoms before periods…. I basically wont know until it starts and I see it on my underwear (sorry TMI).
When my son was a year old I got pregnant and had a miscarriage at 5 1/2 weeks. Periods remained the same (irregular) after miscarriage.
Did anyones periods/cycle change after having a baby/miscarraige?
