so i thought i'd be one of the lucky women who had ZERO periods while breastfeeding. HA, i could only be so lucky.

on the 13th of this month i started my period. 5 weeks post partum...yay me. it was a period. i had stopped my postpartum bleeding already and then BAM...a period. it lasted for a week and then it stopped. well guess who woke up this morning bleeding again?? that's right...ME! so, what...i'm gonna have a period every other week now????


:(( this isn't fair. i just want to be period free or at least have a period every 28 days. 


has anyone else experienced this? is this normal??

I have had 1 period, 5 weeks after I delivered on 2-5-11.  I also got the BC Implanon PP.  Have not had a period since then.

I didn't get a period until my daughter was just over a year. But we don't use birthcontrol. If your on birth control that could have something to do with it.

I went 4 months, to the day, and have had the 28 day cycle since.  I was SOOO hoping to be one of those lucky women who didn't have a period and lost all the baby weight while BFing.  NOPE on both counts.  Only baby gets the BFing benefits. :(
