I would like to see how long/soon everyone got their cycles back.

With my first two kids I got AF at 10 months old(nursed DS#1 til 1 yr, DD til self weaning at 15 months). Zeke is almost 20 months old, and still a total boob addict and AF hasn't returned.

I got my period when my daughter was 13 months, we were on vacation :/ She is 17 months now and nurses pretty much all day all night. My periods have been so weird lately.

I got my first pp period at 17 months. I knew it was coming because I recognized the signs of ovulation 2 weeks before. It's been about 5 weeks since and I don't think I've ovulated yet, so my cycles are far from regular.

I am at 32 months (i think) and think i am getting my first PP AF! I had a little spotting the past two days. I have been saying no a lot to DD, so maybe that triggered it?

Very interesting. Thank you ladies for sharing! :-)

I can't complain, it's been nice not having a AF. But we would like to TTC and obviously we can't do that until I ovulate. It's the waiting game I guess...

With DS1 it came back at 14 months. We were down to only morning & bedtime nursing and he weaned completely less than a month later. I had one pp AF and got pregnant on that first cycle!

I'm 10 months pp now with DS2 and no signs of AF yet.

You should have made it a multiple choice .
I got it back at almost 18 months and now at almost 10 months not a sign of it. I hope it stays gone for 2 years this time.

OKAY! I woke up this morning with a visit from Aunt Flow. Zeke is now 21 months(and 1 week ) old. Bummer to have AF, but I am also super excited because we can finally start TTC after this week. WOO!

I got mine back after 6 months. Watch out though! Just because you don't have AF doesn't necessarily mean you aren't ovulating!! A guy I work with is expecting his 4th. His wife never got AF and was exclusively breast feeding their 6 month old when she got pregnant. Took years for them to conceive each of the first two, and now two at practically the same time!
Thank you GraysMama for my amazing siggy!

Mine came back at either 6 weeks or 3 months. I stopped my PP bleeding after 2 weeks and started up again at 6 weeks. I thought it was just more PP bleeding. When I got an AF at 3 months, I wasn't so sure. However since I am not sure, I generally say 3 months.

I was EBFing as well. I felt cheated!

I got it back at 8 months PP and it was pretty regular (every 30-35 days) right off the bat. Hoping it stays away longer this time though
