I had my baby in September. I had intercourse Oct 3rd & got my period Oct 9th-19th. Then I got another period Nov 9th-14th. I’m currently waiting for my dec period but it says I’m 4 days late. I’ve also taken MANY pregnancy tests and all say negative. Why is it late though??

Ask your question

  • if you don’t believe the home pregnancy tests go to your gp and ask for a blood test, usually your period will show up right after you have the appointment just to be really helpful lol but generally you are meant to wait to take a test until you are around 10 days late



  • Stress can make you late too, so the more you’re stressing, the later it could be. Just try not to stress and if you’re really worried, go and see a Dr where they can do a blood test to find out for sure.



  • Im thinking your body is just adjusting after birth. Hormones have to settle down and get back to normal.. I wouldn;t stress too much just yet.



  • You need to give your body time to recuperate after how hard it had worked to make a baby and give birth! best to see a doctor for advise if concerned.



  • It could still be your body adjusting back to normality after bub.



  • So many reasons especially if you are breastfeeding. I understand your stress if you don’t get your period by the end of the weekend maybe see your Dr to put your mind at ease.



  • It takes awhile for your hormones to regulate after having a baby, dont stress mama!



  • It can take ages for your periods to settle down again after a baby. Especially if you’re breastfeeding.
