there's no definitive answer to this so no-one will be able to give you one. i've read of women getting their period from a range of 9 weeks to 9 months. it will come back when your body is ready for it to. now you're no longer breastfeeding, i think that would speed it up but don't forget your body has been through a big ordeal having a baby! you've gone through lot of changes and you need to let your body recover, after all those hormones etc are raging everywhere. it will come when it wants to. sorry, like most things in pregnancy, there's not just one straightforward answer xxxxx

i'm sorry hun, i don't know. i can't help with the breastfeeding either as having no interest in it and never having done it, i'm a little stuck for knowledge. have you googled any of your questions? spoke to your gp/friends/family? fingers crossed someone can give you a helping hand, sorry i can't be of any help.. xxxxxxx

I don't talk to much of my family any more besides if my mom was alive she'd be the only person i'd talk too...
but its hard to get advice from any one else, my friends don't breast feed..
and I have no g-parents..
I wish someone would help or at least know some of my questions..
thank you for trying to help.. =)

hi I cant really help with the period thing as I'm BF my daughter still and havent had one since giving birth.
Theoretically if you are still producing milk you should be able to reintroduce BF and increase your milk production. Maybe try to give him a feed before his bottle to see if you can begin to increase your production and return to BF.
I would still be careful as BF is not a certain way of not getting pregnant, you dont necessarily have to have a period to get pregnant, as you ovulate before having a period.

You will ovulate for the first time BEFORE you get your first period so if you don't want to conceive again you need to use protection, if you fully breastfeed and aren't having periods its likely you aren't ovulating yet, but there's no guarantees . Breast feeding isn't 100% as a contraceptive . If you want to reintroduce the breast then offer a breast feed first every feed and just top up with formula if baby is still hungry , that way your supply will build back up as long as its not completely gone . Some babies won't breast feed again though once they're used to the bottle i'm afraid so you'll just have to try and see how it goes Good luck x
