I had my dd almost 8 weeks ago and dint stop bleeding from that until she was about 6 weeks. When I wiped earlier there was a little blood but i'm not sure if its the begining of a period or what.


So when did you get yours back?

I have a 3 month old. I spotted until 10 weeks and then got an IUD. A little spotting since then. I am hoping to not ever get it back between breastfeeding exclusively and the IUD.

Are you breastfeeding? That will often delay it as well.

Anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months was my longest.

I EBF and it didn't do anything to prevent my cycle from returning. I wasn't one of the lucky ones. Lol

I bled for 2 weeks after. And then had period about a month after. Right around the 6 week mark.

Six months after each kid was born. I was breastfeeding with all of them, but had been completely done nursing by three months and pumping by six months with my first. I thought that's what caused my period to come back, but then I was ebf with the other two and I got my period back at the time time.

With breastfeeding the soonest it's returned for me is 7 months postpartum.

I stopped bleeding after a week or 2 and then resumed my normal periods the next month. A yr later I got the IUD and bleed almost everyday. I had it taken out after a yr of that nonsense
