Hormones After Pregnancy

It can take many months for your hormones to average out after pregnancy. If you are breastfeeding it will take your hormones even longer to return back to where they were before pregnancy. I think many moms stop experiencing extreme hormone fluctuations 3 months after birth, even if they are breastfeeding. Breastfeeding can also play a factor into when your period returns.

    I saw fluctuations for a long time while breastfeeding. I don't remember how many months though.
