    I have polycystic ovaries so I rarely have them (3 a year usually!) but now I've got the implant in anyway so I have no idea what to expect. You're still expressing a bit of boobmilk aren't you? So that'll probably make a difference. If you're worried though you could always go to the drs and ask :hugs:

    I think it depends if you are breastfeeding or not. Usually, your AF returns later if you are breastfeeding.

    After my daughter it took two years before I had a period! It was great! I'm hoping I'll have a long period break with this one too. My doctor told me it was perfectly normal and not to worry - I BF until she was 15 months but it was a further 9 months after I stopped before my periods returned.
