I stopped breast feeding when my daughter was 8 or 9 weeks since I was drying up.(i had seen lacation and a doctor) I dried up with my first child too and got my period a month after i stopped nursing. And now she is almost 4 months now and I still have not gotten my period. Anyone else? I am getting a bit nervous since we haven't used protectoin a couple times..AHHHH

i was in the same situation.. i did a test and then one more two weeks after that and thankfully both were negative.. but it still took me almos 3 1/2 months to get my period back.. so it should be anytime.. but i hope you are on some form of b/c since you can get pregnant before you ever get that first period.. ive had it happen with two of my friends.. good luck and hopefully aunt flo comes for a visit to your place soon.. lol

I don't know if it is true or not but I have heard it can take up to a year for a cycle to return. Maybe a PT would help calm you some? Good luck girl!

I'd test just for some peace of mind! I got mine back while still nursing my son last time at 9 months so I'm assuming it will be gone that long if not longer this time. But if youre worried test!
