how long for AF after delivery?

Postby Trevorsmommy » Wed Apr 20, 2011 7:13 am

I was just wondering how long it took for AF to show up after you delivered. I delivered my son stillborn at 39 weeks..vaginal delivery, no real issues. But this friday it will be 6 weeks and AF still hasn't showed up.. i'm starting to get frustrated because Dr said we should wait 3 normal periods before ttc again.. so I will be on the pill until then.. but he wants me to wait until AF shows to start on the pill.. Its frustrating waiting.. just to start another waiting game. I wish she would just show so I can know things are getting back to normal and I can 3-month pill stint.
Me:28 :love: DH: 30
DS#1: 7
DS#2: (3.11.11) Stillborn at 39w.
DD#1: She's Here!! 3.16.12

I so sorry to hear of your loss. I cannot be any help on returning AF as pp bleeding took a while to go and then I EBF so that quite AF at bay. I hope it comes soon for you so you can begin you journey once more.

I'm so sorry for your loss.
I never got my PP period but got pregnant instead. I was 7 wks. when I found out about the pregnancy but we were TTC. From what I have read it can take up to 12 wks.. Hope you don't have to wait that long.
