  • With my oldest daughter, I did not breastfeed and it took about two months. My second daughter, I did breastfeed and it came back after about 7 months and was sporadic and I got pregnant with my son when she was 16 months old. With my son, I breastfed and it came back after about 5 months.

  • Mine came at 11 months and yes still breast feeding. The first few were very heavy flow and I can feel the PMS symptoms a week prior - brutal.

  • Well, I bled for 6 weeks after having my son. Went on the depo shot. Did 5 rounds of that (15 months) and my period came back about 6 months after that. So, my son was nearly 2 before my period returned.

  • Oh I also nursed him till 3. After my period returned it was not regular at all. It was irregular over a year (while he was still nursing) and has only now, over the last 4 months returned to seemingly normal again.
