So I am 28 years old, married, and have a beautiful, amazing 2 year old son, but I've already got the itch for another! The problem is, since the birth of my son, I've gained weight, and have very irregular periods. This same problem was an issue when I was younger, but after taking birth control for about a year, I evened out, lost weight, and maintained regular cycles; hence, the conception of my son. Does this mean that I have to go on birth control again? I hate the thought of taking birth control, when what I really WANT is to become pregnant! I do still have cycles, but they are spaced about 8 to 10 weeks apart!
Is there something I can do to lose the extra weight fast and regulate my periods again, without the birth control pills?
