Menstrual Cycle After Breastfeeding
My cycle wasn't normal at all - in fact, my last regular period was before I got pregnant with Mason in October 2008.
After Mason was born, I breastfed him for 9 months, and got pregnant with Audrey before I ever got my period back. I gave birth to Audrey, and my cycle never came back. I thought it had, as I had some bleeding in the beginning of July, but then in August I didn't have another cycle and tested negative for pregnancy until the end of August at which point I found out I was pregnant with Hayden. When I went in for my first appointment with my OB I told them about what I had thought was my period, but based on the dating of Hayden they said it probably wasn't actually a period, just my body getting ready to re-start my cycle since it would have been an over 50 day cycle based on the dating ultrasound.
Those of you that have gotten a regular cycle back after (or while) breastfeeding, how long did it take your body to really regulate and get back to a normal cycle?
