when did AF return (when EBF) for you?

my lo is over 11 weeks old now and I am EBF. I've been feeding him all night for weeks now and my back, hips and neck (which are weak to begin with) are all out of wack. In the last day and a half I have had very small amounts of blood. I stopped my PP bleeding just before 7 weeks. Do you think it could be AF this soon or from back/hip/neck pain and the Ibprofin I was taking? (my hip literally hurts every time I move/walk and I am now doing a moist heat pad that is starting to work) thanks

Re: when did AF return (when EBF) for you?

Unfortunately I got my AF back only 10 weeks PP! And I ebf... non stop breastfeeding... my DD was nursing almost every 1 1/2 hours, too. I got my AF early with my first, too even though ebf. I was hoping I wouldn't get back soon again. But my cycle is long because I still ebf, so I only get it maybe every 2 months. But still it sucks!!!

Re: when did AF return (when EBF) for you?

Even though my ds was exclusively bf mine returned at 6 weeks even though pp bleeding had just stopped at 5. The first couple were a little irregular, but ever since then they have been right on time. It is not for lack of nursing b/c until about 9 months of age my son nursed every 3 hrs. like clockwork! He's 10 mos. now, and just starting to go longer even though he eats solids like a little pig!
Sorry... I know I felt totally ripped off when mine returned so soon!

You can ovulate before you get AF, so it can help you there, but you probably haven't ovulated if you have gotten AF at all.

I think I am just way to fertile and that is why I got AF back so quickly DS was conceive when I was on BC pill and it only took 1 month to conceive my DD

13 months out and no PP AF. But I was also on domperidone from 5 weeks until just after her 1st birthday. (It inhibits ovulation).

Re: when did AF return (when EBF) for you?

I got AF back for real at 6.5 months postpartum both times, but with DD2 I had very light spotting at 3 mos & 5 mos postpartum.
