First ppaf

Hey all. I started my first Ppaf today. I didn't expect it as we are still ebf. It has been super light so far. No cramping or back pains. Can you share what your first Ppaf was like? I just thought it would be so heavy since its been so long since I've had a period!

With my first baby, it was normal, but a bit irregular and came back at 7.5 months. It started trying to come back at 13.5 months with my 2nd (and I was tandem nursing), but was very light and sporadic until 16 months when it was normal. My periods now are pretty heavy.

With my first it wasn't bad at all. Not nearly as bad as I was expecting after 12 months of breastfeeding! Really hoping to make it that long again!

DS is almost 6mo and i haven't gotten it yet, but last time i got it around 8mo PP and it was very heavy and i was very crampy. Over time they gradually turned normal for me again, not too heavy and about 4 days long.

Re: First ppaf

I got mine at 12 months and it was really super duper heavy and crampy. It was not fun. The next one wasn't bad and it was more like normal.

Re: First ppaf

Very light with no other symptoms, and it only lasted maybe 3 days. I got my first ppaf at 12 months pp, and had another period 2 months later that was similar.
