When did you get your first pp period? BC Mama 2 kids; British Columbia 512 posts9th Nov '12
I've been ebf and not on any sort of bc. My LO is now 5 months and I haven't had a period yet. When is it normal to get your period back?

With my son, it was 7 months, with my daughter, she's 9 months and I still don't have one (though I've felt like it was coming for a while now).

I am 7 weeks PP and started mine last week but I never was feeding from the breast, I pumped for 4 weeks until my supply dried up.

If you are ebf it's a bit different for everyone. I didn't get mine back until ten months after giving birth and my son started baby food at 6 months in addition to bf'ing.

From what I understand if you are EBF it could be awhile.
