I am on implanton since May and just got my 1st period. I Breast fed for 5 months. Is it normal to have a period for almost a month straight? I weaned my son last month due to personal reasons. I am tired of this darn period.

Had my afterbirth period for about a week or two then stopped. Now my baby will be 6 months next week and finally just got my 1 st real period. Its been over a year and several months since I had it. Yes, I thought I was pregnant again, but u have to have sex to get pregnant right?!! LOL I'm not on any birth control and been mostly breast feeding her.

Mine was the regular week long, but I was on the mini-pill, so that might have affected my cycle. It didn't come back until 11 months after my son was born! I'm hoping it will stay away longer this time around....

I had implanon put in at 6weeks, and a couple of weeks later I got a light period that lasted for three weeks. When I normally have light-med period that is 5-7 days (previously on implanon for 7.5 years).
Haven't had another one since, which is normal for me to have bigger gaps than 4 weeks, often 8 weeks.
Everyone's response is different.
It seems a large range of experiences occurs.
Some are lucky to return to their normal.
Ask your family health nurse or family doctor if you are worried.
