Post subject: 10 week old baby and no period yet???
Just a little question. I had my lo 10 1/2 weeks ago,i breastfed for 6 weeks but had to stop as she got admitted to hospital and the medication she was on sent her appetite soaring. i have been exclusively bottlefeeding now for nearly 5 weeks and I have still not got my period.The last few days I have been having really bad cramping,it actually feels like early contraction pains sometimes, but still no bleeding. I am just wondering if this is normal as with my boy I had a period about 7/8 weeks after he was born. Im not on any contraception as got a talk with doc tomorrow morning. any info would be great!! xx

Post subject: period?
I breastfed my son till just after his first birthday. I didn't have a period until a month after I stopped breastfeeding. In total, from my period prior to conception, and that period after I stopped feeding, I hadn't had a period for almost 2 years! Awesome! All back to normal now tho.

Sometimes when you're breast feeding you don't get periods until you stop, but if you're having sex you still need to use contraception as you could still ov at some point and conceive (as ovulation comes before AF in the menstrual cycle) and obviously if you weren't having periods you might not even realise for a while that you were pregnant I found the first time I breast fed that my periods didn't come back until six weeks after I stopped but the other 3 times it was anything from 6 weeks after the birth to about 3 months after xx
