Is it possible to get your period after 5-6 weeks after delivery if you are fully breast-feeding? I'm a little shocked at the moment...

Thank you so much for responding, I went to see the doctor and he said that he think's it is menstrual bleeding...

Mine came back 4 weeks after having them and I was breastfeeding exclusively.

It depends on the woman. I have a friend who was exclusively nursing twins and got it back regularly every month starting at 6 weeks. I was exclusively nursing my son and it came back regularly starting at 2.5 months. Then I have a friend who exclusively nursed in the beginning, but supplemented all of hers w/ formula later on, but with 3 kids.... she never got it back until each kid was fully weaned.
