    Default 11week old baby & still no period.

    Hi my baby girl is 11weeks old & still i have not had a period. I went to dr & she Said it's normal due to being under weight. Has anyone else had this problem before & what did you do for it to come back?

    Are you breastfeeding?
    I didn't get mine back to well over 6 months, one was 10 months after birth.
    Nothing to do with being underweight.

    Going by my own past experience, mine won't return until 6 weeks after complete cessation of breast feeding.

    I didn't BF and I'm not underweight. However I didn't get mine back until about 7 months later. And it's been patchy since.

    Why would you think they should have returned?
    If you're breastfeeding it's normal not to have them return for a long time, 7 months on and still no periods for me yay!

    Hi, we were bottle feeding from about 4 weeks and I got mine when DS just over three months old. Don't stress - I say enjoy it while you can. And while I know it varies a lot for each mum, I found the first one pretty rough, so stock up on heat packs and pain relief.

    Yup I agree, enjoy it while you can... If you're worried you might be pregnant take a test... It's happened before!
