I gave birth 12 weeks ago I have had 2

Patient: I gave birth 12 weeks ago. I have had 2 periods since, the last being 2 weeks long. If I count from the start date I would be 6 days late now. Is this normal?

 

 

Doctor: Hello dear,Thanks for trusting ATD about your health care.I can understand your concerns.Yes, it is quite norm al to missed a period after delivery and you can have irregular period but to be sure whether you are pregnant or not , you should go for a home urine pregnancy test after 7 days of your missed period date to rule out pregnancy.Please revert back to us with your test results.Hope to hear from you soon.Good luck.Regards
