When did you get your first period post birth?


As the title really, just wondered when those that ff got their periods back?
My little man is 9 weeks now and I only breastfed for the first day so thought it would have been by now?

I formula fed from the very start and got my period back exactly six weeks to the day I had my son. Coincidentally, my sister (who breastfed) also got hers back on exactly six weeks to the day.

Your body's probably just taking a little longer to adjust back.

I never got a natural period after birth. I went back on the pill at 5 months and that forced the withdraw bleeds. I BF for 10 weeks.

I didn't formula feed I breast fed for ten months and once I'd dropped down to one feed a day they came back. So, 10 months and two weeks x

With my second whom I FF my period arrived about 7 weeks postpartum. With my third who I also FF my period came at 8 weeks. Usually it arrives by 12 weeks if exclusively FF is what my midwife told me.

My first baby I had mine at roughly 10 weeks.
My second baby I had it at 8half weeks.
As above usually by 12 weeks you should have it. Your body might just be taking a little longer to adjust. X
