4 months Post partum + menstrual cramps = period coming?


I'm exclusively BF and starting to have cramps...has this ever happened to you and resulted in your period coming back?

I'd get cramps on and off for a few months, like phantom pains! I didn't actually get my period until around 10 months. I think its just your hormones adjusting.

I get my periods right away, even though I'm exclusively breastfeeding. I am 3 months postpartum and had my first period 30 days ago. Typically, my body is pretty good at getting back on track so I'm confused why it's not here. This week I had cramps, felt off, and increased CM, most of it being EWCM...so I'm confused if I Od this week instead of getting my period. Still waiting....not pregnant either, I checked.
Could be your AF is on the way...or it's just cramping and that too shall past! For your sake, I hope it stays away!

Are you sure it wasn't just more pp bleeding? I bled on and off for 12 weeks and I put it down to lochia.

Have you had unprotected sex because that can make CM look like EWCM? Having said that I had the exact same thing, thinking I'd ov-ed etc, more discharge...but it still took 10 months but its been very regular since then.
