I can speak from a recent experience of my sister. She was breast feeding for 8 months and gets a period. She doesn’t get another one. She stops breast feeding her daughter at around 11 months. Her period doesn’t come back. Goes to the OB and she’s 2 months pregnant. Be careful 🙂

@camrie: I know! My sister actually just delivered my new “oopsie” nephew on the 13th.  He’s adorable!

I nursed for nine months. I got my period once around the six month mark. I did not get another one until it had been a year-that one was extreme though.

I got mine earlier than most moms I know.  Mine came at 4 months even though I was exclusively breastfeeding.  Most other moms I know didnt get it until they finished BFing most around 6-8 months…..

Well, I am on Mirena, but I have only had minimal spotting and DS is 7 months tomorrow.  I used to have pretty heavy periods, so I don’t think it is just the Mirena.

I got my period 3 months after having my daughter, and it was hell! I was breast-feeding up until she was 9 months old!!! And I had to go to the doctor, because each month for the week of my period, I wasn’t producing enough milk. It was really really hard, and my doctor had no idea why I got my period.

@mwitter80: The same thing happened to my sister, now my nephews are 14 months apart. 😉 

@beanieboo: So, just remember BFing isn’t birth control so be careful!
