I just had my first period post pregnancy (my lo is 7 1/2 months old and I am no longer br___tfeeding) can I expect my cycles to be regular if I am no longer br___tfeeding? Just wondering as we would like to start on #2 soon. I have not been br___tfeeding for 2 1/2 months.

Sorry to say but it just depends on your body. When I stopped b___stfeeding my son, it took about 5 months for me to have a cycle and then after that I didn't get one for another 4 months. But, some women get it back right away and then are regular from there on. Good luck on ttc!

It's different with every woman. I BF till my lo was 6wks and then only had my 1st period at 5 months pp. I have yet to have my 2nd and I'm 9 months pp now.

Sigh...Well I was hoping to get pregnant again soon. Do I just wait it out or try something (drug wise) to get cycling regularly again?

I still have not gotten my period yet....9.5 months pp, stopped bf about 2 months ago...nothing yet :( but I had fertilty issues trying to conceive dd, so I have my RE appt scheduled for next week to get my consultation to be able to ttc #2 in January. You may be able to take provera/prometrium or one cycle of bcp to jumpstart your cycles...that never worked for me though. If you don't do that it may take a few months to get things back to normal. Good luck.

It will just depend on you and how much your hormones have adjusted. You'll have to just wait and see. Good luck w/ ttc number 2. My lo is also 7.5 months and we are 6.5w's pregnant now...they'll be close but it should be fun anyways. I hope you get that 2nd one soon too.

I guess I will have to just wait and see. I had a perfectly normal period and prior my first pregnancy you could have set your watch by it every month as it was regular. Now I just don't know. I am late for my second period now but don't feel pregnant, atleast none of the sore nipples/b___sts that I had the first time. However, I do realise that the symptoms may not always be the same. I guess I will just wait and see.

I have a question about the first period as lo is 3 weeks and bf and now I feel as though I am experiencing my first period post pregnancy... I have started bleeding heavily (sorry if tmi) and feel a bit crampy I think...its hard to say b/c I've never had a regular period due to stage 4 endometriosis so I don't know what a regular period feels like... the endo caused horrible dibilitating I just have slight low cramps and back this my period starting now or still effects of giving birth? (i had a csection if that helps) thanks!

I am still b___stfeeding, although only 3x a day since my ds is 11 months old. My first pp period was at 9 months, and it's been like clockwork since then, so I can practically tell you what hour of the day it will start! Funny, because it was totally irregular pre-pregnancy...

I have a 2 and a half month baby girl. Since day one till now I b___st fed and bottle fed her. My period came back just after 7 weeks i gave birth (c-section). Like other ladies said.. its all different for every woman's body. .
