Idk if this was considered a period, but about a week or two ago (8 months pp) I *think* I got mine. I never had cramps either, until then and it was terrible. I was trying to workout and I felt like I was in labor. The period itself was a very light flow though, almost like spotting. I could only wear a tampon for the morning portion of the day, and it lasted like 4 days.
Again, IDK if that is even considered a period, so idk how accurate my experience is.
