8 weeks both times!

I was not impressed, although they were lighter for the first few.

Then they got really heavy, heavier than they had ever been before.

Then kind of settled back to their previous pattern.

12 weeks for DS1, 10 weeks for DS2 which really sucked because I was exclusively breastfeeding both times and thought I might have had a bit longer without a visit from AF!

I'm still EBF at 11 months

4 months, slightly lighter than before and straight away! I went on the copper coil at 2 months post partum.

22 months, but was (and am) still breastfeeding. Couldn't tolerate tampons any more, despite having had a c-section. Took about 8 months to get back into a regular cycle. Now pregnant again.

16 months. More painful.

with both my DS and DD exclusive breastfeeding my periods came back at 7 months. (i did start weaning onto simple solids with both at 16 weeks).

No more painful that ever, in fact probably slightly less for me! And tampons never really worked well for me, so i cant help there

Was not sure where to post this but when did people get their period after baby if ebf?, also did you find them more painful than they used to be or not?, how long did you wait before going back to using tampons? cheers as am wondering what to expect as they used to be really painful even though I was on the pill which I am not anymore.
