hi everyone -- i had a baby on april 14th. i breastfed him for 1 month -- or until around may 15th. i still have not had a period. i called my midwife and she just said it was fine and sometimes it takes awhile. im just scared. all of the reading i have done has said u should start 30 days after the baby or 30 after u are done breastfeeding.....im just worried it could be something else -- im a worrier by nature -- lol -- thanks for the advice!
hope this is the right board
I believe my period started about 4 or 5 weeks after the post-partum bleeding stopped. So that was 10-11 weeks. I breast fed for 5 months. Breast feeding has more to do with ovulation than your period. So in a way, they are related. However, I don't think breastfeeding directly affects your period. Then again, I am not a doctor.
