  • After the initial bleed from giving birth, i did not have my period for almost a year. I also breastfed, i know that had something to do with it

  • Are you breast feeding? I didn't get my period until I started my daughter on solids. Sometimes the drop in milk production will cause your period to start...a lot of women don't get their period until they stop altogether. If not...I'm not sure how long it takes.

  • It can take a while, especially if you are nursing.

  • IU didn't get mine until my DS was 9 mos old, and I still BF him (he is 10 mos now). Waiting for AF #2 any day now.

  • well... i'm breastfeeding still, and i gave birth aug. 2nd and just finished my first period last week... but my mom didn't even have one until 9 months after... whenever your hormones start regulating a little thats when you'll probably start... don't worry though.. just enjoy it while you can... you've got a long time ahead of you to have a stupid period!!! lol
