How long did it take for your period to go back to normal after giving birth (if you’re not breastfeeding)? I had a baby in July and mine is still wonky, even on birth control. I have a history of ovarian cysts and I’m wondering if the cysts are acting up/getting worse or if my body is still being weird from having a baby. I’ve skipped periods all together for a couple months, had SUPER light periods where I could have missed it if I wasn’t trying to look for it, or recently I’ve had a three 21 day cycles in a row – which means I’ve have 2 (TWO!!) periods this month. The BC should be keeping me on a regular 28 day cycle, and I was really regular without BC for a few years and while TTC. Just wondering what’s normal (considering I’m on BC) for 9 months post-partum.
