  • I stopped breast feeding my baby a few weeks ago and just got my mensus this week for the first time. I don't know if it will be regular or not yet since this is the first one but I am pretty sure it will be.

  • Like everything else, it's different for every one. I got my period back the month after giving birth even WHILE breast feeding. My girlfriend didn't get hers again for two years! Reguardless of when it happens, don't forget: you are always suseptable to getting pregnant.

  • My son self weaned at almost 21 months...that was last October. I got a period in Jan 08 (woohoo for no period for almost 3 years) but it's been very irregular since then. I never start on the same date, never the same length of time. My Dr. said it's all normal, just your body trying to regulate the hormones. I also haven't dried up yet (it's only been 14 months!) , so that might have something to do with it.
