When did yours arrive? I'm 6.5 weeks since section now and not arrived as yet. Will it be heavy? I'm bottle feeding.

Mine hadn't arrived by the time I was 8 weeks post section. I was still on and off light after birth bleeding and I thought it was starting so I started back on my pill but it never really amounted to much and went back to what it was like on the pill before I was pregnant. I also bottle fed.

I'm 6 weeks yesterday and it arrived last week. I'm combination feeding so around 60% BF & 40% FF.

I don't think there's any set time but speak with your Dr if worried.

Mine appeared promptly 28 days post birth, then regular afterwards. I exclusively breast fed.

Everyone is different. Is there a reason you're worried? If you're having sex again then contraception is necessary even if your period hasn't returned.

I don't know when I can start taking the pill again? And also booked into a water park in 2 weeks time!!
