I did not nurse my 2 kids, and my cycles began around 4 weeks, although I never stopped bleeding after I had my babies, it just got worse and worse til I was actually hemorrhaging. Had to have a D&C 6 weeks after my 2nd baby.
That depends greatly on if you are nursing or not. If you are nursing exclusively then your period may not return until you begin to wean the baby. But, it may start after the baby is 4 months or so. If you are NOT nursing then it may come back right away. I was different with both of my girls. With my first I nursed her until she was 10 months old and NEVER GOT MY PERIOD. I actually got pregnant with my 2nd baby when the first was only 10 months old. I ovulated but never menstruated. With my second (now 8 months old) I also nursed but got my period when she was 6 months old.
It depends. After my first daughter who I only nursed for about 6 weeks, I got my period about 3 months after she was born. With my other 2 kids who I nursed each for over a year, I didn't start my period until about 6-8 months after I gave birth. And I had horrible periods after both of them. I've had to have a D&C and am now considering some other options.
I had my second daughter march 31st and its now july 6th and I had one period since I had the baby an that was in may... And never started again :|
