I still Exclusively breastfeed my daughter of (almost) 6 months and had what I can only assume was a period in May/June for the first time. After that, I don't think i've had another period but I have been bleeding on and off with what COULD be a period but it isn't the normal one I imagine. I often wonder if this is normal, but I just attribute it to breastfeeding.

Hello... I have a question, and it's a TMI question, but I'm not sure where to ask it :) I am from the TTC after loss and PG after loss pages. I am now about 11 weeks PP and EBFing. My PP bleeding stopped at 6 weeks and I have been normal ever since. Today I have had huge globs of what may be EWCM * I've never had it before * It's goopy and stretchy and it's blood tinged... Like pink and brown. I normally feel my ovulation, but never spotted or had EWCM.... We are NOT TTC for now... Any ideas? Thanks in Advance :)

I wasnt to sure where to ask this question...... I have breastfeed since birth, it has now been 3months and i have just stopped. Its seems like i am now getting my first postpartum period, how long does it last for? and what is the bleeding meant to be like? Im now 2days in and it seems quite raw blood and quite heavy. Sorry for the TMI.

My son will be eleven months on the 20th of this month, and still no period for me. And I would love to actively TTC again, so I hope it comes back soon. I know it is possible to still get pregnant, but it would be a lot easier if I was ovulating on a regular cycle!

The week I finally eased out of breast feeding, I got my period! Still, it was nice while it lasted. (BF for 10 months).

ugh!!!!!! I am 7 wks postpartum with my third child and with each child I have exclusively BF and as with each of the other 2 I got AF at exactly 7 weeks! Why cant I be one of the lucky ones?? I hate that! Its just not right! LOL (not really, Im actually crying!)

I have EBF baby since birth, she is almost 7months old. We introduced solids a little over a month ago but i would always BF first, then offer solids. She has 3 meals a day and BF around 4-5 times still and i got my period in August :( I couldnt beleive it....shocked! Its not as bad as before i got pregnant, no cramps at all (??) I used to have A LOT of issues with my periods/hormones and I am honestly really scared about what it will be like when she does fully wean (not until the far future hopefully, i would like to BF for at least a year and then let her self wean). I think the only reason i'm not having issues like i used to before i was pregnant is because of the hormones from BF'ing. The only difference i notice is my supply dips down a bit when AF starts. But, it hasnt seemed to effect her at all, she's contented as can be :o)

hi modelimited- you can still get pregnant because you could ovulate at any time if your bub is sleeping trough the night then that lack of a feed could induce AF. but it is normal once there are less feeds your AF will come back and slowly get it's self back into your normal pettern. some women AF will return at 6w after they give birth i got my fisrt one 8 weeks after and i was exclusivly breast feeding for four monthsthen my bub was having his first solids. but some women won't have one untill their baby is weened :) hope this helps

I had my daughter back in May, breastfed strong until July but still haven't gotten my period. Is that normal? Can I get pregnant if I'm not having a period? I'm so confused!

My daughter just turned one on the 11th and I got my period the 21st. Yuck!! Oh well, at least I got the wonderful break for over a year!! I guess it just surprised me to see blood! I definitely wasn't expecting it! Especially since I am still nursing at night and even 1-2 times during the day. I guess everyone is different!

I had my baby almost 9 months ago and had to quit bfeeding in mid July... I still have not gotten my period back?? with my other 2 babies I had it back within a month but this time it feels like forever. I want to start trying for my 4th and FINAL baby in September but am worried that not having my period will throw my body off. Can I even get pregnant w/out having a period?? hmmm?

My son is 19 months and nursing strong. Still no period. It has been awesome but I want to get pregnant in Jan 2010 when he turns 2. I dont want to wean him either. Does anyone know if it is possible to get pregnant without a period? Or better yet has it happened to anyone? Thanks!

Ugh, AF has returned. I went 19 months without a cycle, I guess I should be thankful it stayed away as long as it did...

I haven' gotten mine back yet and son is 11 months old. It really just depends on each person. My sis got hers back at 6 months, my mom not till she completely weaned. Some women get it back right away. Your body will eventually get back to normal ;)

My sister never got her period back until about a month or so after her children are completely weaned. Some of you are just lucky not to have to deal with it until after a long time. I got it back when Kekoa was 8 or 9 months.

Well, I am now wondering when I will start my period again. My DD turned 7months on the 15th of July. I just started feeding her baby food at 5-6 months. Now she eats 2 jars a day. I am praying I am not pregnant. A couple of weeks ago I thought for sure AF was coming b/c I was cramping really bad but it never showed. I am not on any BC now. I go to the OB this Monday and plan on getting the shot then. Bad thing is BC and AF gives me worse migraines so I am not sure what will happen with that. Anyone with advice on my AF coming or BC would be great! Sorry so long but I haven't wrote in a long while. So, sorry I forgot to say I am breastfeeding and still feeding 2-3 times during the night.

adalynnsmommy -I think everyone I know has a decrease around their time of the month. But in my situation my son was well past the eating food stage that I was ok with a bit of a drop. How most get around it is during that time you just need to feed more often. Back to when Baby was getting up every couple of hours during the night. I also ate fermented oatmeal which really helped me pump more when I was working. I would start eating it twice a day a couple days before I was due and continue on until it ended. It worked for me. Every women is different though.

Just started bleeding yesterday....my son is turning one on June 20. I've been on the mini pill since he was 6 weeks old. He's really decreased his eating during the day. Only eats in morning twice and once at night. DARN! I better get on something stronger as I don't want to get preggers yet

I got my period back finally yesterday, so now
I am not so paranoid about TTC with our 3rd. Although this period has NOT been fun so far. Making up for lost time I guess.
SherB - I didn't get my period back from the pill - if you take the mini pill (the one safe for breastfeeding) it is a progesterone only pill, so it shouldn't affect your period. My milk supply wasn't affected at all by the pill either.
