Mine arrived 4 months to the day after. Am EBF so hoped I'd get longer. Just wondering what other people's experiences were.

SauvignonBlanche Wed 01-Jan-14 20:39:16

ChazzerChaser Wed 01-Jan-14 20:42:56

Can't remember, but something like 4-6 months and I felt totally diddled as I was EBF too

rubyslippers Wed 01-Jan-14 20:43:33

EBF and got to 7 months with no period

Was quite pleased with that

YokoUhOh Wed 01-Jan-14 20:43:36

Nearly 14 months and still no period...

waceystills Wed 01-Jan-14 20:44:14

Came back today!

DS is 15 weeks on Saturday and I EBF for 10 weeks then I mix fed.

madamecake Wed 01-Jan-14 20:45:08

3 months both times, both ebf.

Pascha Wed 01-Jan-14 20:45:59

14 months and 9 months. Both ebf. My friend managed 4 weeks both times, and she was ebf too.

AndIFeedEmGunpowder Wed 01-Jan-14 20:47:06

14 months here despite mixed feeding & DD giving up the boob completely by 11 months.

NearTheWindmill Wed 01-Jan-14 20:50:34

After birth - 13 years and 10 months. After giving birth, about eight weeks.

GeorgieWilson Wed 01-Jan-14 20:50:39

Couple of weeks ago at 4.5 months and am ebf. Expected to get longer but not too disappointed as hoping to ttc again soon.

GoGoveGo Wed 01-Jan-14 20:51:31

3 weeks with my first, 8 months with my second - both exclusively breast fed.

theyoniwayisnorthwards Wed 01-Jan-14 20:51:48

12 months, ebf.

exexpat Wed 01-Jan-14 20:52:33

8 or 9 months with both (breast fed, though both started solids at around 5 months).

Choccyjules Wed 01-Jan-14 20:53:59

4 weeks bang-on and I was EBF.

perfectstorm Wed 01-Jan-14 20:54:50

EBF (expressing) and switched to formula at 8 months. Period was back inside a month, so 9 months. Think you've been unlucky, tbh (though I'd rather have had periods and been able to breastfeed without a pump and bottles, so swings and roundabouts?).

eveylikesv Wed 01-Jan-14 20:55:12

Over 12 months now and still nothing, ebf still. Hope it is not coming back anytime soon.
