If you did NOT breastfeed... ρiηkie ρie 3 kids; 3 angel babies; Kentucky 21902 posts

When did you get your first PP period?



I am 9 weeks PP. Still no period. I DID breastfeed for about 2 weeks but I supplemented with formula during that time and I'm not breastfeeding at all now. I also bleed for about 4 weeks PP. Would any of that have to do with my not getting my period back yet? I took a test a couple weeks ago, it was negative, thankfully. I haven't tested since but I plan on it. With DD I only bleed for 2 weeks and had my first period with her at exactly 6 weeks. I didn't breastfeed her at all. I honestly don't think I'm pregnant, but I guess it's a possibility it was just too soon. Idk, I just want to know what's going on with my body. Bloody undies dust? Please? :lol:

Lol I've never wish anyone "bloody undies dust" but good luck!



I'm thinking even those two weeks of breastfeeding could have delayed your period. Is your milk fully dried up? I would think if you're still leaking even a little that there may still be hormones delaying your period.

I breastfed for 4 weeks but my supply died and I switched to formula. DS was born August 22, 2011 and my first PP period came on the 12th of December and then again on Christmas Day because my body hates me. It then came back around the 16th of January and then again for my birthday on the 29th. After that it became regular again.

I always started my period at 8 weeks, which sucked because I was always bleeding up untill the 6 week mark, 2 weeks off then back to bleeding (sorry tmi)



even when I did bf, it just made my cycles longer...

If any of you ladies have another baby, I highly suggest red raspberry leaf tea starting at 37 weeks.



I only bled 10 days PP :D

I had my daughter August 17th and got my first PP period November 13th. I remember the exact date because I thought it was funny that I got it the same day as my last period before I got pregnant lol

I freaked out because I didn't have one until a little over 11 weeks pp, no breastfeeding, tubes tied. My son is 5 1/2 months and I've only had 2 so far.
