am kind of eager for mine to come back, ive been bf a year now and we are down to 2 feeds a day.
anyone waited much longer than that?

You're eager for them to come back? Why, fgs?! Or maybe it's just me that finds them a complete pita

Mine came back last week, a day before my DS turned 6 months. What's worse is that it lasted about 5 days, stopped and then appears to have restarted again today angry

at about 10/11 months. and it was the biggest period of my life lol! you have been warned! grin

I think with each child I've had they've returned earlier. Ds3 is 5 months and I certainly feel very pre men. Could explain the shit mood I've been in, or that could just be down to the number of children I have wink

am hoping my sex drive will return with my period, and ive got some childbirth injuries im hoping will heal with estrogen levels returning to normal...
but im a bit frightened now!

Mine came back at exactly 6 weeks each time. <sigh>

Mine came back at 8 weeks and 6 weeks. And they were horrific.

My ist post birth periods weren't bad. It took a while for them to become regular again though.

With DS, 4 weeks after I completely stopped bf (about 10 months).

With DD at about 8 months (was still bf quite a lot then).

First period at about 4 months, then a gap, then regular from 6 months. DS was still feeding a lot (including in the night) by this stage.

Jackstini Fri 21-Sep-07 10:02:54

About 10 months, then skipped one, then back to normal. Didn't make any difference to sex-drive though - stayed kind of steady

quokka Fri 21-Sep-07 10:04:35

I got ripped off - 2 months with both ds.

bohemianbint Fri 21-Sep-07 10:06:00
