Periods after labour

When did everyone's periods start back?

My son is 8 weeks old, my bleeding stopped at 3 weeks and I'm worried I haven't had period yet. We wanted to start trying for another mid-end this year. (I know it's soon but we do have our reasons medically)

I'm waiting for it to start so I can start tracking again and I'm worried it's not going to arrive. I know it's silly but I'm panicking.

do you ff or breastfeed? i breastfeed and mine just arrived...22months later.
you can ttc even without having period back though.

Congratulations on the arrival of your baby.

My periods started again approx 18 months after giving birth (mybe a bit earlier with dc1) - I breastfed but I have friends who also breastfed whose periods started again after a couple of months- everyone’s different.

Oh gosh, I thought it was weeks after it started. I'm ff my DS.

I might be being really thick here but I thought you didn't ovulate without a period?

I EBF and it was 29 fecking days after I'd given birth and then 29 fecking days onwards until this pregnancy 🙄

Mine started after 5 months, mixed feeding.

If ff, it can still take a couple of months I think.
