Will it ever return?

Anyone else still waiting for their first period post-baby?  I'm not complaining, I'm just starting to wonder if it's ever going to happen!  

I am breastfeeding DD which I know keeps it away.  But I had read that when we started introducing food it would probably return.  That was almost three months ago!

ETA:  I went to urgent care for a sinus infection a couple months ago.  When I answered that my last period was in October of 2014, the nurse looked at me like I had three heads!

Re: Will it ever return?

  • It came back with my DS at 10.5 months so I am guessing it will be another 2-3 months for mine to return.   I have zero signs of ovulating anytime soon.

  • Most ladies don't seem to get AF back until they start to night wean.

    Interesting. That was the main consensus on the breastfeeding board.

  • No sign of return for me either but I do take the mini pill and breast feed. I have taken the mini pill in the past and I usually didn't have a period either. Before I got pregnant I stopped taking it and 2 weeks later we started trying and conceived on the first try. Then they would always ask when my last period was and I was like oh I don't know? lol so they definitely looked at me like I had 3 heads also.

    At the risk of making everyone here hate me....DD consistently sleeps 12 hours in a row every night, and has been doing that since December.  And yet, no period!
  • Mine returned in January.  Son was 5 months old.  I was still nursing and he would nurse about every hour and a half at night.  I was pumping at work and noticed a slight drop in supply.  Now I'm just hoping it will regulate. 
  • It's probably the BFing. Everyone is different. Are you on any BC? That could also play a part if you are. Whatever the case, just run it by your OB if you're concerned, and enjoy it while it lasts! 
    I for one got AF back quickly, even when I was BFing, but I was on the mini pill and my body actually needs a progesterone boost to get my plumbing working right.
  • I'm EBFing and my daughter has not night weaned and mine came back at 5 months PP.

  • Just got mine and it's a doozy! Daughter is 9 months. I'm definitely feeling it. 
  • Ds just turned 11 months this week and still no AF. I night nurse at least 2x plus 5x a day so im thinking it won't be coming back soon
