    I was BF my little guy until about 6 weeks ago. I have still not started and I'm concerned. Anyone know how long it takes for cycles to start after quitting BF?

    Mine pretty much started right away but I wouldn't be too worry because every women is different. I am sure it'll come and you will be wishing that you could go back to not having it :) Every women is so different that my sister had her period even when she was BF. HTH

    I didn't get mine until 6 weeks after I stopped bfing. I think it just depends on your body.

    A friend of mine, with 5 kiddos told me that when her babies no longer nurse during the night is generally when her cycle returns.

    with my first baby my cycle started when she was 16months old, but she was a horrible sleeper until she was 2.5 and i was already pregnant by then and had just stopped nursing her. So, i'd just say focus on getting healthy and staying up on your prenatal to help your body replenish itself, i'm sure it will return soon enough, but i don't think it prevents you from getting pregnant if that is your aim. take care
