So what is the average time to have to wait for a period once weaned completely? Nursing once a day kept my PPAF from arriving so I'm still waiting for that first period still and I quit nursing completely 17 days ago. Obviously not yet a month but I could swear I had all the signs of ovulation about 11 days ago including really sore breasts for the first time ever. Well, except engorgement pain but this felt different and it stopped about a couple days after the fertile cervical mucus went away. It was the first time I actually had that fertile CM since before pregnancy. I know it really varies from woman to woman so that's why I'm curious about averages and maybe the longest wait. My child is now 14 months old so from what I have found out through good old google, chances are higher to ovulate before that first period but obviously not a guarantee.
