  • I had my period the entire time I breastfeed. It came back maybe 2 months after I gave birth.

  • mine came back at 6 weeks post partum with all 3 kids (i nursed all of them.... no formula or bottles). everyone is different. that's why it's not a good birthcontrol lol

  • I was still breastfeeding when my cycle returned with both my older boys, with my first it returned by 3 months postpartum, with my second I had my first period before my 6 week postpartum appointment. My youngest is about 5 1/2 months right now and no sign of my cycle so far.
