Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for seeking our help with your concern of the absence of a period.

Following the delivery of a baby, a woman has a vaginal discharge, which is called lochia. The fluid is discharged from the vagina for a week or so after childbirth. At first the lochia is primarily blood, followed by a more mucousy fluid that contains dried blood, and finally a clear-to-yellow discharge. It can last up to six weeks.

If you're not breastfeeding, you should have begin menstruating between three and ten weeks after giving birth. If you're breastfeeding,especially if you are breast feeding your baby exclusively, you might not get a period for several months.

Anonymous, this is a very long time to not have a period. Please consult your obstetrician.
