breastfeeding no period Rss

My Baby is 4months old and I've breastfed the wholetime exclusively.
She sleeps through the night so I normally do about 6 feeds a day (3 hrly).
I started the mini pill last week for contraception.
I still havent had a period since the birth and am just windering when I should expect it?
When did everyone else get theirs when they breastfed?
hi,

I exclusively breastfed DD1 for 8 months and it didn't come back for me the entire time.
My DD2 is 4 and a half months and she has just gone onto formula but it hasn't come back yet either.
With both of my babies, my period returned about the 3 to 4 month mark.
With DS, I was bottlefeeding and with DD I was exclusively breastfeeding, and this did not seem to make a difference.
But everyone is different.

Yes, everyone is totally different. With DD1 I went on the mini pill and my period returned when she was just 6 weeks old, then for the entire 12 months I was on the mini pill I got my period every 2 - 3 weeks! DD2 is now 5 weeks old so I'm waiting to see what happens . . . .
DD period back at 8 weeks - exclusively breastfed
DS perio back at 10 weeks and he is exclusively breastfed too.
Doesn't seem fair!!!
I got mine back at about 9 months. Feeds had slowed right down to about three or four a day.

mine returned when I stopped breastfeeding at 12 months. It was wonderful!
Everyone is different i was feeding my DD 5 times a day and got it back at 7 1/2 mths, my friend has a nearly 15 mth old feeds her twice a day and still no period.....
DD was exclusively breastfed. My period came back two weeks after she first started solids at 6 months!! I tend to think it wasn't a coincidence smile
I got mine back after 6 1/2 months of breastfeeding 5 x daily. My DS is now 8 1/2 months, still on 5 b/feeds & I get it regularly every month. My DS slept through from 3 months.
is it only once your period comes back that you can fall pregnant again?? or can it happen right after bubba is born???
