  • Depends on the person. If you're breastfeeding it MIGHT delay it more. I exclusively breastfed both of my boys, yet my period came back a couple of months postpartum after my first and before my 6 week appointment with my second.

  • It depends... I did not get my period until I stopped breastfeeding!

  • Maybe I'm just weird...after I had my son, I didn't get mine until a month after his first birthday. I bf pretty heavy up until he was about 10 months old. I had to wean him because I had to have oral surgery.

  • I got my first one 3 months after I had my baby and it lasted 28 days. It was horrible and it had lots of clots for the first week.

  • I got mine 2 months after I had my son. It was extremely heavy and had clots. I had to ff after a week cuz he was not latching.

  • My son is 13 months and I still don't have it. With my first it took 18 months, and my middle was 12 months. I BF on demand, yes still.
