Re: return of my period... but this can't be right.

  • I got my period back at about 6 weeks.  I wasn't EBF, but I was pumping.  It definitely returned sooner than I had anticipated.  I've heard that BF can delay your period, but I don't know if that's an absolute or it's just common for a lot of women.

  • I was just wondering about this! I noticed what looked like a very tiny amount of period-esque-ness (haha) in the toilet last time I went to the bathroom, and I just stood there staring at it going - but it's only been 4 weeks, and I EBF! I suppose it COULD still be lochia, but that was a lot lighter. Arrrrrgh.
