Period after weaning
Hi ladies! I just recently weaned my 1yr old and am still getting over the engorgement. I got my first period back at the beginning of October. I should've gotten it again on the 30th but it has yet to appear. I haven't taken a test yet because I wanted till was a full week past my period. Has anyone has any issues with their period being irregular when they started weaning? I didn't go cold turkey, dropped a feeding then waited 3-4 days before dropping another. I don't feel like I'm pregnant but I know its possible! Anyone experienced something similar?
thanks!!!

wow we could have written the same post. I was going through this all last week. My first period after breastfeeding for one year was last month. I was due to have last wed but was having alot of pregnancy symptoms and was actually hoping to have a BFP when I tested. I gave in and took a test this morning and BFN. :( around 4 oclock AF came. She was 5 days late. Before I got pregnant I was very regular with my periods.. I am talking every 28 days I would get my period! I assumed it would go right back to the way it was. But maybe ours bodies just need time to adjust. Good LUck

It didn't happen to me, but I know someone who when they started to feed less they slowly got there period back, and for them it's still not regular (There feeding once or twice a day still).  It might not be regular for you until after you completely stop.

Hi britni84,

it's VERY common for your period to be irregular after you stop nursing. It can take up to 6 months or so to get back on a regular cycle. Good luck!
