    6 months postpartum and still no period!

    Hi All,

    Was wondering how long it took you all to get your period back after giving birth. I don't BF but I still haven't started menstruating...

    Should I go to the doctor's to check or is this considered normal...

    Thanks!!!

    I was breastfeeding exclusively and got mine back at 8 or 9 months post partum. I wouldnt be too worried, so liberating not have a period for a while. Actually thats one of the things I love about being pregnant, silly me :)

    I am still breastfeeding (half expressing when i am at work) but i got my period back at 4 months. I dunno why and I am not sure if getting my period back means my milk supply is dwindling. I LOVE not having my period too so i am not too happy about getting it back so early!

    I should add that I think BFers get their period back when they reduce the amount of BFing, for example, going back to work and pumping, or in my case, putting baby on solids. So, if you`re still BFing the same amount as always, it might now come back.
    I really mourned the day it came back. Those 15 months were wonderful.

    I'm 19 mnths post partum and still without my period. I went back to work at 9wks post partum and pump at work.

    I'd kinda like it back sometime soon though...
