  • Unfortunately, that's not a given. I got mine at 5 weeks post-partum, and have had a period every month since (baby is 2 years old now). I was never regular before this baby, and then this, despite exclusive breastfeeding for the first 7.5 months. Talk about being disillusioned. :(

  • It is possible. I bled for 5 and a half weeks with my first and 6 weeks with my second. Both times I started my period a week later :( I breastfed as well and wasn't one of the lucky ladies who didn't have a period during that time.
