ALright my question is to those who have already had a child or know of anyone who has recently and went back on the pill afterwards. I had my lil one at the beginning of November.... and my doc gave me a prescription for the pill and told me to go back on it... which is all fine and dandy... but am I suppose to wait till I get my first period from after the delivery? or am I suppose to start taking them right away? it's been 8 weeks since I gave birth and still no peirod. Everything was fine at the 6 week checkup... but i spaced on asking when i start taking it again... anyone know? I'm no longer breastfeeding...btw... if that helps
Thanks in advance

Congratulations hon.Personally i would wait for my first period, it can't be that long in coming now if you gave birth 8 weeks ago...........if you are unsure, either give your doc a ring, or ask a health visitor im sure she will have all the info you need.
Just be sure to use other protection until you get back on the pill, it is very easy to get pregnant right after you give birth, your body is already in that baby mode.
