just wondering,trying to get a rough estimate of when mine could come back,if at all (atleast until i stop br___tfeeding).dd is 7 months. i hope it doesn't come back or i won't be in a good mood having my period and having to take care of a baby must be real annoying when it comes back if you're like me and get a heavy flow.

Mine came back at 8-9 months PP. Hope yours doesn't!

Mine never did! When my ds was just over 6 months we found out we were expecting again. :) I was exclusively b___stfeeding and apparently got pregnant the first time I O'ed (not sure even when that was yet). I'm not sure what would be worse. The horrible cramps and all that "fun" stuff with a period or the incredible exhaustion, sickness and hormones with pregnancy. I may never know if we keep going at this rate!!! lol GL

My baby will be 9 months in 2 weeks and still not period (blissful!) I am now only b___stfeeding 2-3 times daily

I am 5.5 mo pp and no period yet... but last month and the same time this month I got cramps. A sign it's on the way? Don't know.

I finally got mine at 9 months PP. And I say finally because we were ready to try for baby number two. But in the last almost 4 months, I have only had it twice. So it is very irregular still, and makes for baby making a little unpredictable. Any one that did get their period after b___st feeding, how long did it take for it to become regular?

Mine just returned after 7.5 months with my fourth baby. With my second it returned after 5months, my third after 8months and it was regular as clockwork. I used to have an incrediblky heavy flow and they lasted 7-10days easily. Since having them they have gotten lighter each time and shorter. The one I have just had lasted 5 days with the fifth day barely being spotting.

I got mine back when DS was just a few days shy of 11 mos. We were still BFing a lot then (several times per day and a couple of times at night, too). It was like clockwork when it came - the same length cycles as before I got preg, too. I started working PT (2 days per week) when DS was 6 mos old and started pumping then - I think that was when my body started trying to ovulate again - had PMSy symptoms off and on for several months until I finally did get my period. My mom didn't have a period for almost 2 years after she had me (didn't get one until I weaned.... and my DS was conceived that very same month). I also know a woman who only BFed for 6 weeks and then switch her DS to formula when she went back to work. She didn't get her period back for about 18 months. So, everyone is different!
