My periods have become irregular after having a baby?

It is common for a woman’s menstrual cycle to become irregular after giving birth. This can be caused by hormonal changes in the body as well as the physical stress of pregnancy and childbirth. It can take several months for the menstrual cycle to return to normal. If your periods do not return to normal after a few months, or if you have other concerns, it is a good idea to speak with your healthcare provider for further evaluation and guidance.
