Periods stopped

I’m 5 months postpartum and my periods were really bad I had really bad head aches, feeling sick and they were every 3 days but ever since February/March they just stopped I’ve taken loads of tests and there all negative

Does anyone have an idea on why this could be?

Are you breastfeeding?

Sometimes periods can be intermittent or totally vanish for a while after having a baby, but get in touch with your doctor, if you are worried.

I was going to ask the same question as @johannad if you’re breastfeeding it can interfere with your cycle. Also if you’ve recently started taking any contraception that could also give you irregular periods.

If you can’t identify a cause then personally I’d contact your doctor just to get checked over x
