  • MOST women do not ovulate/have a period while nursing for at least 6 months, but again that is MOST women not all. I have no experience being on the pill and nursing though so I have no idea what is going on. The pill may make your period come back early since it is regulating your hormone levels not your body as much.

  • That's a bunch of bologna that you "won't" have a period of you're breastfeeding! If that were true, then why are you on the pill, and why are other breastfeeding moms pregnant?

  • I had my first period less than 3 months after my daughter was born, and I was exclusively breastfeeding.
