DD is 7 1/2 mo old and I ebf... I still haven't started my period which I'm ok with and have heard that I may not get it for a while. Is their mamas out there the same as me? Or moms that have gone through it how long was it till you got yours back?

Average for EBF moms is 14 months. It is most common to get it back between 3-22 months. Every one is different!

I got mine after 14 months, then its took a few cycles to get back to normal.

Very good to know ladies :) I love not having it and as long as I know it's normal then it can just stay away lol not that I really need it anyways since I got my tubes tied

I ebf and I got mine shortly after my pp bleed stopped. Like a month or 2 weeks somewhere in there. I'm hoping this time around is different, but as long as baby and I are healthy i'll be good =)

My LO is 8 months and I still haven't had a real period. Back when I was on the mini pill I got a weird half period every 2 weeks for 6 weeks but as soon as I stopped the pill I went back to not having anything.
