    Mine came back last month when Thomas was 8.5 months old. I had just gone down to only 2 feeds a day (morning and night) and I think the reduction in demand triggered them coming back, got another one now :growlmad:

    I have PCOS and had no periods for 18months before I conceived Max using Clomid. I got my period yesterday after 11weeks of exclusive breastfeeding. Gutted with the inconvenience of it but pleased as punch I actually got one at all!!
