  • I have my period back now but have been nursing for 2 and a half years. I didn't see a period well over year from the start of nursing and it has only just come back on a regular basis although it is based further apart than before and much lighter. This however I think is also down to have a much cleaner diet too.

  • It's different with each kid. I got mine back at 13 months and had haven't had one in 6 weeks and I know I am not pregnant.
