Hi--

I am one year post partum with no sign of AF. During my other post partum times, AF returned at 8 months like clockwork.

Do you think this is no big deal, or is due to DC's heavy nursing, or could be caused by an underlying health problem?

I'm sorry if I sound paranoid. I don't know what's normal with this-- I don't think I've ever heard of a woman going more than a year post partum with no AF.

Please share when AF returned for you-- thanks!!

I didnt get AF until ds was 18.5 months. I read that the average return age for AF is 14 months. I am sure you are normal.

Join the no af club! DD is 16 months and no AF for me; I would be in tears if I gave it much thought, because I want to ttc in a couple months and it doesn't seem likely. You surely are normal. The only reason you might have to be concerned is if you are far below a normal healthy weight. The average return of AF if doing ecological bf is 14.5 months, but can be far later. And it's all normal. Aren't our bodies wonderfully diverse?

no AF here until 17 months after dd was born. She weaned and Wa-La... AF. No need to worry. I'm expecting #2 now 6 months later.

My ds turns 18 months tomorrow and I just got my first ppaf today! It was quite a surprise after so long.....explained the lower back pain I'd been having for a day or so.

So yeah, sounds normal to me.

with DD, got it back @ 11 months with DS 23.5 MONTHS! I wasn't ready to TTC at that point, so I was happy to have AF on extended vacation. After about 6 months, we tried to concieve, and succeded our first month. Maybe your babe or body is trying to tell you it is not time yet?
