I nursed my son for just over a year... When should I expect my period???

It's been over a week now after the last time I nursed. Should I be worried it hasn't come yet?

  • No, not at all. It takes a while for your hormones to get back to normal. It doesn't usuallly work that you just stop BFing and bam get your period. Don't worry.

  • I stopped BF at the end of May and have only spotted a little just this week. It takes your body some time to adjust your horomones. Just use your BC as normal, if you dont use any get on some unless you want another baby. I got and IUD and I LOVE IT!!!!

  • Usually, you get it back when your baby is night weaned, sleeping through the night, or drops a significant number of feedings. I got mine back when my nine month old night weaned.

  • hey, I got mine while I was nursing, around the time my son turned 7 months, is that normal?

  • There is no rule. I got my period back with my first at 7 months though he nursed for 3yrs, and with my second I got it back at 17mo though she is still nursing at 3years.

  • It will come about 2 weeks after you ovulate.
