has anyone gotten their period yet, that is breastfeeding?
I hav'nt gotten my first period yet. I am exclusively breastfeeding, but this is my 4th baby and i breastfed my other ones for a while (longer than this anyway, about 7 months usually) and still got my first period with them within 5-8 weeks post-partum. I got fitted for a diaphram at 6 weeks, but then found out they no longer carry the size that I need (which *****, because I wanted to go non-hormonal and can't have an IUD), so I am now going on the min-pill or breastfeeding BC, but i only started it 4 days ago and my baby is 2 1/2 months, I did take a pregnancy test last week though and it was negitive, so I am assuming I just hav'nt gotten one yet, because I am breastfeeding, but was wondering if snyone else had yet! Thanks
I think i a a little paranoid when it comes to pregnancy, since I have gotten pregnant on BC 3 times! including the kind I am now on! and I realize that most breastfeeding moms don't get their periods for a while, but since i usually do it makes me nervous! I do want more kid's, but I would'nt want to have another one this soon. my sister-in-law had 3 kid's in 22 month (1 every 11 months) and I don't think they got enough time to be the baby before another baby came along, when Katiana is about 8 months, I will probably go off BC depednign on how it's going.
