    Just wondering, my bubs is nearly 6 months and still havent gotten my period back. Two of my friends did, first one after 6 weeks, the other one at 4 months. Just wondering when i can expect AF back?

    It seems to vary greatly.

    Mine came back at 14 months and 16 months. I seem to get it back only after I have been feeding only twice per day for a few months.

    15mths for me. Dd bf until 18.5mths, self weaned when I fell pregnant again. I enjoyed the extended break though it did make me nervous at times thinking I was sure to get caught out.

    I'm breast feeding and my period came back almost instantly. I think it varies with each baby, each woman et.

    Exclusively breastfed both my girls. AF came back at 6 months with my first and 7 months with my second (both when I started them on solids).
