No AF

So Sophie fully weaned herself off BF'ing about three weeks ago... I thought for sure AF was right around the corner, as I had a few days of crampiness... but it never came... since then, still nothing... I know there's no magic number of days as to when AF returns and I'm not exactly complaining, but it totally freaks me out that it hasn't shown up. I mean, I LOVE that it's not here... but at the same time DF and I had a couple of oops while DTD, but nothing I could test for just yet... or well, there was one on the May 24 weekend, but I've POAS and it was a negative... so unless we managed to get pregnant like two weeks ago... Blum 3 I'm rambling... LOL! How long did it take for AF to return foe everyone else??

I wouldn't panic yet since pretty much anything is considered normal I've learned. Basically despite not BFing any more hormones can still be wonky and it can take a bit for you to ovulate (your body does have to get those pesky hormones at the right levels for that to happen!) and then you still have around 2 weeks-ish after that before AF will show. Sooooooo....have fun waiting! Wink The last AF taught me to keep pads stocked everywhere and on me at all times.

It probably takes awhile for those BFing hormones to completely disappear. Enjoy her absence!

I keep forgetting to keep tampons in my purse just in case. I'm still not used to needing them again! I stopped bf at 6 mo, and I believe AF showed up about 4 or 5 wks later for the 1st time. Though it's hard for me to know what effect the Mirena has on that as well.

It only took 2 weeks for mine to show up after ds.. But everyone is different Im sure. I would be careful if you are not ready to get prego again though..

Hi, I was lurking around and figured I would give you my experience. With DS it took 3+ months after totally stopping BFing before getting AF. This time we have gone down to only 2 feedings a day (sometimes 1) for over 2 months. I never got AF and now I'm prego again (planned) so I won't have one for a long time I guess. It can take a while, but remember to be careful because it is hard to tell when you O since the hormones are all over the place still. I have no idea when I did so my EDD for now is highly on the estimated side.

I hate how BFing, O'ing, AF, and pregnancy symptoms can all run together.
