When did you get first AF?

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

When did you get first AF?

Postby Twinklebug » Mon Apr 12, 2010 10:03 am

I've heard different answers to this, but am curious when everyone's first AF showed. I had my C section 8 weeks ago and I still have not had mine...I am not BFing so I thought it would come sooner..like around 6 weeks? What were your experiences?

For anyone who is interested, AF arrived last night-exactly two months after my C section. I'm not happy to see the witch return ! LOL

With DD I bled for pretty much 7 weeks - I had a lot of stitches though so that may have contributed to that. Then I didn't get AF again til almost 6 months PP. I was exclusively BFing though and DD didn't start solids til 6 months :)

Mine came just over 8 weeks. I can't breastfeed. The first AF wasn't so bad for me. I only bled for a normal 5 ish days with some extended days of spotting. The second AF came 35ish days later (normal for me) and lasted the same amount of time, though I had NO warning and severe cramping for the first 2 or 3 days.

Not as bad as I expected! Thank goodness!

With my ds I got my af at 6 wks pp, I continued to get them every 28 days although I was EBF. They were very light though with virtually no cramps. Mainly just a few days of spotting. This time I am 4 wks pp and still bleeding/spotting from the birth.
