Has anyone gotten their period yet?
I just got mine yesterday and I'm still breastfeeding.
My doctor told me I may not get it while BF but, I did....anyone else have this?
Is this normal or does that mean my milk supply will decrease?

I haven't gotten mine yet (but I'm still pp spotting at 8 weeks pp), but I know that a good percentage of breastfeeding moms will get theirs even if they are ebf'ing. It is more likely to happen if you are supplementing, but it can still happen if you are exclusively breastfeeding. I'm one of those that didn't get mine back until my second daughter was almost 13 months old (when I stopped pumping at work), so I can't tell you from a personal standpoint if it would have hurt my supply, but I don't think having AF should hurt your supply.

I started my period last week, but i got on the pill for two weeks then quit taking it. It started up when i stopped the pill. My milk supply decreased bc of the pill, i dont think my period did it.

Last time around, I exclusively pumped, and I had regular periods the whole time. I was an overproducer, so it definitely didn't impact my supply.

I was struggling with my breast milk supply and nothing was getting helpful to establish it until I started drinking Healthy nursing tea. It was great that helped me producing sufficient supply.
