End of BF… return to normal when???

I stopped BF about a month ago, after EBF for 2.5 years. My boobs took a couple of weeks to look and feel normal again. I'm wondering if I've O'd this month (temps all over, and I didn't start temping until mid-way through the cycle). Last month was a 24 day cycle, and now I'm on CD30 with no PG symptoms. 

So…. question I have for you all is - how long did your body take to have normal, ovulatory cycles after you stopped BFing? I've attached my newbie chart, if that is helpful.

  • I BF for over 2+ years, but I may be no help. My cycles became very regular a month after I night weaned DS (when he was between 13 and 14 months old).

  • From what I've read and heard, some women go back to normal right away, some it takes months. Everyone is different, unfortunately knowing what happened to other women won't help you to know what your timeline will be. You might find more women with advice on the Breastfeeding board, couldn't hurt to get your question out to a wider audience. Good luck!
