I was just wondering how long after breast feeding did it take you to get back on a somewhat normal menstrual cycle?

I'm asking because mine has been pretty messed up since I stopped breastfeeding in mid december. Before I got pregnant, AF showed up like clockwork, every 28 days... now I'm on day 36 of this current cycle. I didnt know if this was just based on the breastfeeding or if I should be calling my doctor.

(BTW: I already took a pregnancy test, it was negative)

I've always gotten AF at 12 weeks post partum even while exclusively breastfeeding (for going on 10 months now). When I do get it back, the first couple of AF's are wierd, but after that I'm pretty regular. Sorry I'm no help.

I got AF back 8.5 months after having DD. And it still isn't normal. I thought that I would have a new "normal" cycle of 33-34 days, then it went back to 28. And then it went up to 35 days, that worried me so I took a pregnancy test. It was negative too. I'm not sure if it's related to breastfeeding or not.

Your body takes time to adjust the hormone levels and it can mess AF up for a bit, sometimes it is permanent but only time will tell.

Thank you so much! I'm glad to hear I'm not alone with the funny cycle.
