Hi,

I had my little boy 10 weeks ago and still haven't had a period yet. I have PCOS but should I be worried?

Thanks in advance x

Are you breastfeeding? That will normally delay your period, I didn't have a period till the week before my daughters first birthday, she'd cut back a lot on milk and was eating more food.Even if your bottle feeding, it's not unusual for your period to be delayed coming back.

Congratulations on your little one x

Sorry should have said no I'm not breastfeeding anymore - thanks for the reassurance

Even if you did for a bit the hormones from it will stop your periods for a while. I was gutted when mine came back😂

I was breastfeeding and mine didn’t come back for 7 months or so. If you only recently stopped it will also take a while but 10 weeks isn’t long at all. My PP bleeding didn’t stop until 6 weeks after. Absolutely seek a medical opinion if you are worried but I’d say it’s normal x

Hi, I’m the same my little boy is 8weeks old today and I still haven’t had a period and I have pcos I did breastfeed for 2/3 weeks at first .... and had a c section too so wonder if that’s another reason? Don’t worry hopefully it’s normal xx

I had mine 7 weeks ago via c section and only breastfeed mixing with bottle the first 3 weeks... still no period. I’m glad I came across this thread and it’s kinda reassuring! I guess the lack of sleep, exhaustion and hormonal changes play part of that and differently to individuals xx

I had my baby girl 8 weeks ago via c-section and have not had a period yet. I also have PCOS. I had a check up at the doctors yesterday and he said it was entirely normal not to have had a period yet and it could be several more months before I do. Please don’t worry but as others have said, seek medical advice if you are worried.

They say that when you breastfeed for some reason it takes longer for you to get a period. My son is 8 months and I stopped breastfeeding him maybe a month ago & I still have no period
