Re: Painful latch at 10 months

Mine have come back at 5 months (nursed that baby until he was four years old, he didn't start solids until about 14 months, plus had second baby when first was 26 months old), with second baby I got it back at 5 months (and I was nursing first and second at the time), and the third I got back at 4 months.

I don't mind getting my periods back early. Then I know I am fertile and I need to be careful and start FAM. When your period starts while you are still exclusively nursing you may have a higher estrogen level, which means you may not be so affected by vaginal dryness that is common with breastfeeding moms, etc. That was me.
