Period after stopping Breastfeeding

Barbie - posted on 01/11/2010 ( 2 moms have responded )




I had my son in May 2009, breastfed for 4 months, and had to stop at the beginning of October. I had a small amount of bleeding (maybe a week or so) after delivery, but haven't had a period since. It has now been 3.5 months since I stopped breastfeeding. How long after you stopped breastfeeding before you got your period back? Should I be worried since I haven't yet?

No, no need to worry. my doctor said it could be a year before i get a period again and i just recently quit breastfeeding.
