I am 7 weeks postpartum only breastfeeding and I just got what seems to be my period. Is that normal? I've heard a lotthat you are not supposed to get one breastfeeding. What's all your experiences? Thank you!
I'm breastfeeding and got my period at 7 or 8 weeks PP
Some get them later than others, some sooner.
I'm 8+ months PP and still haven't had a period.
ETA: And I'm breastfeeding. Duh, meant to mention that.
Everyone is different. I am 4 months PP and no period.
At 7 weeks PP I stopped bleeding completely...then at 9 weeks PP I got what I thought was my period but it only lasted a day. And then, 11 weeks PP I got what I thought was my period again but that only lasted a day as well!
Since then I have gotten nothing. I'm 6 months PP now and EBF'ing still.
I started a regular period around 7 - 8 weeks. I breast fed for six months.
Quoting m a r i a h:
It really varies greatly between women. There are many I know that got theirs shortly after their lochia stopped even though EBF. I never go mine with my son until I weaned at 13 months. I still haven't with my daughter and she is 2 1/2 months.
I bled for almost 4 weeks, went to the dr when it was just about cleared up. everything was all good. the dr. prescribed me some BC pills that were different b/c I was breastfeeding...I had my period at about 5 weeks PP & had it just about every 2-3 weeks...then about a month ago I would have a 3-4 day period, stop for about 4-5 then start a 3-4 day period again. it was ridiculous!!! I stopped taking my pills & having sex...not I haven't seen my period in a month...its been sooooo nice not to bleed!!!! lol
I'm going back to the dr. SOON, so we will talk about the Nuva Ring & regular BC pills & see what I decide to do!
