I had my son about 9 months ago. April was the last time i got my period. Is it normal to be this late? I know after your pregnancy it is "common" to miss your period but its been quite some time. I am not pregnant again and i do not feel stressed at all?.....I am not breastfeeding either

Are you nursing? If you are, it is very normal not to have a period until you are done with the breastfeeding. If you are bottle feeding, you should talk to your OB/GYN

My period came back when my son was 4 mos old (he had almost stopped night feedings at that point) but then he started wanting to feed at night again and my periods stopped and didn't come back again until he was 11mos (when he stopped feeding at night entirely). It's all related to hormones; breastfeeding (if you're doing it at least every 4 hours, approx) keeps you from ovulating and therefore from having your period. When you stop feeding so often, you'll start ovulating again.

I know if you are still breastfeeding you won't get your period or it might be lite. Not sure.
