    18 months here too I hope she stays away for a long time becuase I want to wait to TTC until Hunter is 2 or so.

    DS is currently 20.5 mo old and no AF.

    Which makes it, ummm .... 28 mo with no AF.

    I asked my OB/GYN about this at my last checkup. She said that since I'm continuing to BF (and also taking the mini-pill) she is totally not worried about my no AF.

    She said that when DS weans and if still don't have AF show up then give her a call.

    Oh - DS nurses on average 4 times a day and has been night weaned for about 3 mo

    Mine stayed away for only 4 months and DS is exclusively BF. I was NOT happy to see the return of it 1 hour into my 14-hour flight to the U.S. I had no pads, tampons, nothing...

    I'm almost 7 month pp and still nothing. I also take the Depo shot so that could have a lot to do with it, right?

    I like not having AF, though! It's niiiiiiiiiiice!!!

    my last AF was in august of '05, so that's... 2 yrs 8 months and counting! if i don't ovulate until the next baby is around 15 months, i'm looking at over 4 years with no evil period. maybe longer if a 3rd baby is in the works...

    It'll be a year this month. I've got the Para-Guard IUD, and I've no intentions of having another child until DS is fully potty trained.
    Some say he blows out his diapers just so he can stay naked longer... and that if you take him to IKEA, he will try to chat up the brightly colored sample rooms on display in the store. All we know is, he's called THE LANCE.

    DD is 8 months, so roughly 17 months total. It is *wonderful* I dread it coming back!
