Again When The Menstruation after Pregnancy?

After pregnancy, after giving birth and birth baby, the body of a woman who not already hosts a creature goes back, little by little, to its natural state. Parties who resumed their functions is the reproductive, and with it, ovulation, the preparation of the uterus for a pregnancy and the subsequent bleeding if this does not occur. I.e., menstruation.

However, it is difficult to establish a specific time in which say that menstruation returns, because it depends on some factors that are different for every woman, which varies more equation type of power that the baby receives. To try to shed a little light today we explain again when the menstruation after pregnancy wearing pregnancy footwear.

Women who are breastfeeding

When the baby and the placenta was born comes out of the uterus the hormone production prolactin, responsible for the production of breast milk, it fires. Increases in concentration and this makes that start to produce milk (why it is false that with caesarean section late in uploading milk, is what starts the production not how to leave the baby, but the time in which there is no placenta). This increase in prolactin is linked to a decline in estrogen and progesterone, responsible of the menstrual cycle, and thus it is unlikely that ovulation occurs and thus again rule.

When a mother is breastfeeding as is recommended, i.e. six months exclusively, the frequency of outlets does keep high prolactin and other hormones decreased. Accordingly, during the first months many women do not have the rule. But this is not an exact science, and there are babies that maman more often than others, or that day maman much and less at night, and these differences can make that There are women with the rule when they are only nursing.

From the sixth month, when babies start with complementary feeding and the outlets are not so frequent, the levels of prolactin are lowering, estrogen and progesterone increase and thus becomes a time in which menstruation.

The first cycles, as if the thing were still green, they are irregular. So that there may be rule unless there was ovulation, so that they can last for several days or very few, can have normal bleeding, or minimal bleeding and so that they can be very irregular cycles. This is normal because hormone levels are not stable.

But when again the menses?

As I say, in breastfeeding women, it is estimated that a low number of women (about 2%) has the rule even though he is giving exclusive breastfeeding. The vast majority of women will have it once baby has started eating, between the sixth and eighth month (about 60% of women) and the rest they will be coming in subsequent months.

And when I say months also included those in which no one explained how it is possible, those in which a baby has a year and half or two years, and his mother, who is still breastfeeding, still have the rule. It is normal, usual, and is often recommended that 12 months of delivery becomes a gynaecological review (recommended for all women) to see that, despite not having menstruation, everything is fine. The question is if the gynecologist will know that that is normal, because there they put nerves before long, despite being normal amenorrhea.

Women who give bottle

In women who don’t breast-feed, feeding the baby bottle, the rule becomes much before. Prolactin is not kept high because it is not producing milk, estrogens and progesterone soon return to their usual concentrations, and about the second month after the birth becomes the rule for many of them. Thereafter, and until four or five months, will be coming to all.
