    I'm now 7wks post partum and still no AF. I know this is normal but kind of expecting it to appear by now. So when did you ladies who are FF get your first period after giving birth?

    Thanks :flower:

    I was almost 7 weeks when it came back. But I did attempt to breast feed for the first couple of weeks (though I wasn't very successful at all, so it might not count) and expressed for a couple of weeks after that, so I'm not sure how that might have affected my period coming back.

    at 3 months pp :flower: just a note, although they say if you bf you won't have periods for up to 9 months and over, while this is true for some cases its not for everyone, I know several people that bf their kids and had their periods pretty shortly after giving birth :flower: it really depends on the person, its the same with ff, it can take how long it wants really

    Thank you all for your replies.

    Went to the dr today to get the pill and she said that although the general advice is to not rely on the pill until you have had a period that if I start the pill now then in a wk it will be pretty much as reliable as starting it after my period.
