    postpartum period?

    Advertisements
    So I am exactly 6 weeks post today and am still wondering when my period will get here. I am not nursing. I did for a few days after she was born but she would only latch on to the side with nothing in it.Has anyone not nursing got their period after the 6 weeks? I am just incredibly nervous about getting pregnant again. We are using condoms until I go to the doctor. Maybe I am just paranoid.

    i think it just depends on the woman...it varies. some get it sooner than others, nursing or not. i hope that you get it soon so your mind can be put to rest!

    Everyone is different. I am exclusively breastfeeding, DD will be 5 months in a little over a week and I have had my period since approximately 8weeks pp

    Logan is almost 12 weeks old and I still haven't seen Aunt Flow.
    We have yet to have sex and use protection(blame it on trying to get pregnant for 2 years and being trained not too) so I took a test but it was negative. I have never had normal cycles and can go up to 6 mths without one, but I was praying having the baby would help. Im so frustrated right now...
