Dear Periodical Diary
I have a period question. Do you have any ideas on how I can regulate my periods? Since baby no 3, they are all over the place.
I stopped breastfeeding over 6 months ago but unlike my last two pregnancies, my period will just not realign!!
I’m usually like clockwork but have been randomly noting the dates and noticed that now they can come on anything from 21 to 28 days.
I can never predict 😫😫

Dear Frustrated Mumma,
To be honest between 21 -28 is pretty regular, it can take a year to normalise after breastfeeding but generally if you want on the clock, scheduled periods, it can be done through the pill (as it gives a fake period every month)
Not everyone is in favour of the pill but some people like the regularity it brings.
Also download a Tracking App, Clue is good because you get informative content as well as tracking periods, stress and daily activities but there are other apps available.
Finally….. remember any changes to your routine, eating habits or if you have a stressful situation, it can take up to two months to manifest through your period.
We hope this helps
