I gave birth 12 weeks ago I have had 2

Patient

Q: 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

A:   Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting ATD about your health care.

I can understand your concerns.
Yes, it is quite normal 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
