in the 11 months i breastfed my daughter I missed all but 2 periods. I wouldn't worry. breastfeeding can stop or make your period irregular.

When our first child was 6 months I got my period for the first time since I gave birth and then I didn't get it again. I was exclusively breastfeeding and had no idea how regular my periods were supposed to be. I weaned my daughter when she was 10 months old and a month later I still didn't get my period. I took a pregnancy test and it came back positve. I was 5 months pregnant and didn't even know it! If you are having unprotected sex, then there is a good chance that you are pregnant.

Since your breast feeding it is possible for your period to be irregular. My friend was breast feeding and didn't have her period for 6 months and hereof said it was normal.

I breastfed my son for 6 months and didn't have a period. It was less than a month after i stopped breastfeeding when i started my period again. But since you've been having unprotected sex the whole time there is a good possibility that you may be pregnant. You may want to wait a few weeks and take another test to make sure.

My eight months old daughter refuses to take any formula that I give her; she only wants the breast. My concern is, at this stage how do I know she is getting enough milk to keep her satisfied?

I have a eight month old daughter that I am breast feeding and I missed my period last month. It came three days ago. I was a bit worried though that I was pregnant even though I thought I was being careful. If you took the test and it said negative then maybe you are not pregnant. Just hold on a little longer and see as sometimes nerves get the best of us and we actually experience the same symptoms as if we are pregnant. I wish you best of luck!
