How long did it take you to get your period after birth?

Just curious. It's been 2 1/2 months since I had my baby now. And no, I'm not breastfeeding. I'm also not on any type of birth control. We had to use fertility treatments so we were kind of hoping to just conceive.

  • Thats what I had been hearing that it takes long if you're BF. I'm not so I guess I should start considering I may be knocked up again o.o (which is pretty much good so we dun have to go through fertility crap again)

  • I never got one. My son will be 3 in May and I haven't had a period since he was born - I got my IUD 2 months after he was born, and didn't have a period before I got it. I'm lucky, LOL.
