I have been breast feeding for 8 months and still have not got my aunt flow. I had intercourse(which doesnt happen ofter) and i spotted like a VERY little bit hardly even noticable after. Could there be something wrong? With my son i breast fed and recieved my aunt flow like 3 months after but he was a c sec. My 8 month old was a vbac.. Could this be a reason on why i have not gotten it and had spotting? Thanks in advance girls!!

  • Some people go a year with out af while bfing. If you are worried though get a home pregnancy test.

  • When AF comes back with BF depends on how often your LO is eating. The more regularly around the clock they are eating, the longer AF will stay away. Some women will get theirs back before others. With my first, my first cycle came back at 6 months. With my second, it didn't come back until 16 months. My best friend has to wean her kids before AF will come back. So, it is different each time and with each woman. When breastfeeding before AF comes back, I typically take a pregnancy test once a month just to be sure. I conceived my second child before I ever got AF after my first. I ovulated and got pregnant with that first egg. You can buy pregnancy tests in bulk cheap on Amazon.
