  • Yeah, you may not get your period back for quite some time. It will vary from person to person though. With me I never got a period between kids at all - which was 5 months. My mother always got her cycle back right away - 6-8 weeks... I know others who went much longer.

  • With my second it was 17 months before I got it back; with my first it was 7 months.

  • If you are EBF, no binkys, no bottles, letting bay nurse frequently (including during the night), no solids until after 6 months, then the average time for your period to return is 14 months. There is a huge range of normal, some will get it at 3 months and others will go 2 yrs.

  • yes that is the reason. My DD did not have a period for a year after her second baby.

  • I didn't have one for ten years after my last child. I loved it then some doctor thought she should fix it and I'm still having them in my 50's!

  • I didn't get mine back for over a year and a half! Enjoy it. Mine was a combination of nursing and then Implanon birth control.

  • My DS is almost 4 months and I haven't had one yet either. I hope I am one of the lucky ones that can go a year or more.

  • It's possible that you could be pregnant again too.

  • Yeah, I don't have a period until we wean at about a year old. It is a nice break.
