I still haven't had my period yet. My doctor said it might take 4 months or so after giving birth since i breastfeed. Is it normal to still not have it. Has anyone had theirs, or are you still waiting for one?
my doctor said as long as you're BF, you may not get one...i wouldn't worry
I got one 5 weeks after the baby but, I was still PP bleeding a little so, I'm not sure i'd say it was a full period and haven't gotten one since and i'm still BF. I guess I probably won't get one until I'm done BF, as per a lot of my friends who have also BF and my doctor.
I havent gotten mine either and Im EBF. Doc said it would prob stay away until after baby is weaned. Not to worry I did have a little spotting for one day after I got my IUD put in and thats it! WOOT WOOT!!
No AF for me. I am pumping and breastfeeding at night. I thought I was going to have AF soon, but nope and I am happy about that!! I know a woman that hasn't had AF for 19 months and counting because her baby isn't weaned.
It really varies. I had two PPAFs at ridiculously early times (one in nov and one in dec)...but it has been MIA ever since. So I guess I am still missing mine too. It's really normal for some women to haven't get it back for over a year! Enjoy it while you can
totally normal! I had one period in early march, but she hasnt come back again yet. some people dont get AF back until they wean completely. There is one mama in my older sons PR that hasnt had a period since before she got pregnant with her 20 month old son (shes still Bfing him)
With my first baby it came back way soon and I was so pissed. My Mom had always had like a year or more without it after a baby. It was until later that she informed me that it wasn't the case after I was born! Thanks Mom. Anyways, after #2 and #3 it came back a little later each time. Really hoping it stays away for as close to a year as possible. I have not bled since my PP bleeding stopped and I am so glad!!
