How long is normal to not have AF while BF??

I havent started since I had my son over 11weeks ago... Is that normal? Im not EBF but he gets most of his food from me.. After starting BC at 5 weeks i spotted a tiny tiny bit and that was it.

  • I didn't get my period back for about six months, and then it was irregular for another 3-4 months or so as I gradually breast fed less and less. Once I was done breast feeding completely it returned on it's normal cycle pretty much right away. But I was not on birth control at the time so I don't know how that would impact your period. Are you on the pill? I would put in a quick call to your doctor's office to see if you should be getting your period because of the BC or if it's natural to be missing it due to the breast feeding.
