    Took me a good couple months to get mine back. DOn't worry, before you know it, you'll be stuck buying tampons again.

    I agree--enjoy the time without it, because it'll come back before you know it (unfortunately!). Sometimes it takes awhile--not to worry!

    I got my period 4 weeks after I stopped BFing. After you stop, it will take your body at least a couple of weeks before ovulating, and then you won't get your period until about 2 weeks after you ovulate. Everybody is different. Your body is still adjusting to all the hormones, and you might just get it any day now. A friend of mine got her period before she stopped BFing. So, I wouldn't be concerned at all. You are completely normal!

    I breastfed and stopped for 6 weeks and never got my period. My doctor had given me a BC prescription to fill after I had gotten a period. AF never came. So I called the office and they sent me for a pregnancy test. When that came back negative, they told me to start my pack of pills on Sunday. So now I'm back on track. I have always been very regular (before the pill and after while trying to get prego) so it was a surprise to me.

    Re: stopping breastfeeding and not to have my period yet

    Well I breastfed my baby for 1 1/2 yrs. I started getting my period 6 mths after giving birth and it was pretty much on a normal 28 to 30 day cycle. Well I just quit in May 2011 and now my perior is all over the place. Not sure if it's from my stoppiing breasfeeding or if I'm starting perimenipausal(sp)? I hope it's from stopping nursing. Let me know if anyone out there has experienced this. Thanks.
