How long after birth did you get your first AF?


And was it how your cycles used to be before getting pregnant?

10 months.

I no longer have my normal premenstrual symptoms, such as cramps or sore boobs. AF is a surprise each month! The period itself is the same in length/intensity/etc.

Also, they are currently ranging 4.5-6.5 weeks in length, which is par for the course.

I just had my first at 5.5 months pp. it was a bit painful, but not like it used to be. No idea of cycle length until I get af #2.

7 months with DS1 and 9 months with DS2. Both very similar to before, the only difference was a longer time in between each cycle.

I got mine yesterday - 9 weeks and 5 days. I didn't have the usual premenstrual aches but I was exhausted and ridiculously hormonal, I screamed at DH about nothing. I thought I was going mad, then I realised I'd come on. Haven't got much of a comparison to how it used to be yet.

I got mine at 15.5 weeks or 3.5 months pp. no cramps. Same amount of bleeding as before. I don't know the length yet since I haven't gotten any more periods. According to my bbt chart so far looks like this one will be a long one. Not sure if that's due to breastfeeding.

I got mine at 11 weeks postpartum. No cramps at all but extremely heavy flow. That was just a couple of weeks ago so not sure yet on cycles etc

I haven't had one yet (17 1/2 weeks pp) but I'm breastfeeding and taking the mini pill, so hoping I don't have one for a while yet!
