Postpartum

When will my period come back after giving birth. Im about to reach the 6th month but no menses yet. Is it as long as im breastfeeding, my menses will not be back?

It depends on individuals. A lot of mums that are exclusively breastfeed still get their period

It varies between mums. Some mums get their periods while they’re still breastfeeding. For me, I only got mine back once I stopped breastfeeding completely. Same thing happened for both kids

My period returned at 5 months. Your lucky!

Depends! Some people are really lucky that their menses take so long to return! Mine return after 4 months :(

It depends on individual! I'm breastfeeding exclusively and period came at 4 months pp. Heard some mommas waited for 18 months for their first period! Lucky them!

not necessarily

I’ve been breastfeeding for almost 13 months and my period hasn’t returned.
