  • My little one is 12 months old and im still going with breastfeeding but my first period came when my little one was 2.months old so i literally havent stopped bleeding much unfortunately.

  • Our bodies are all different. In the olden days breastfeeding was used as anti conception, but this is only working when solely breastfeeding. For some this worked for others it didn’t. The same with return of period after stopping with breastfeeding; some may have the period returning before stopping with breastfeeding, some instantly after and for some it takes longer. When you have concerns you could have it checked

  • I couldn’t breast feed for more than one week, so I got my periods back fairly quickly.

  • i got mine while breastfeeding so yeah lol

  • I breast fed for nearly 9 months and my period started before I stopped feeding. I guess that’s cos I gradually weaned from boob to bottle. So I’m a bit jealous your periods stopped for so long!
