    It was when I stopped bf, so about7 months with dd and was about 4 months with ds but I was still bf when I got it back but had cut down a bit.

    Worst thing ever after a year and a half without it! Lol

    I was 7 months when mine returned. Was a pity to see the return, was very convenient not to have to bother with it. I breast fed until 14 months.

    Some people are still bleeding 6 weeks post pregnancy.

    I breastfed until 14.5 months (when I fell pregnant) but got my period back at nine months. I bled for 6 weeks after giving birth (c-section)

    11 months here and still nothing......still bfeeding during the day, but not as much as we used to, and haven't fed overnight since about 6 months..... As much as I love not having it, we're looking at trying for #2 and it's a bit hard to do when we have no idea what my body's doing!
