Your period is generally the result of an unfertilised egg during ovulation. So basically you ovulate BEFORE you have a period. You ovulate and the egg is fertile? No period, and pregnant. It is a total myth that breastfeeding is a form of contraception.

Breast feeding is not a birth control method, you can still get pregos while you are breast feeding, You're doc should have talked to you about this. I'm not sure how becuz like you said no peroid, but if you got a positive result, it's more then likely if you did the test correctly, read it in the time it directed you too. Then you are pregos. Again, you can still get pregos when you are breast feeding!!

Go to the doctor to confirm, a friend of mine fell pregnant and although she wasn't breastfeeding, she hadn't had her period for 10 months, so in her case, she did fall pregnant without having her period return.....

Yes! It is a complete myth that you can't get pregnant while breastfeeding! A friend of mine had her baby and eight months later twins! She was shocked but now feels so very blessed :)

I have a 6 month son and I am still breastfeeding. Iam 10 weeks pregnant I only got one period. I was waiting for my next when I noticed it was late so I took a test. Low and behold it was positive. So it is totaly possible your pregnant. Time to see your doctor. Best of luck you are going to be busy. Congrats.

Yes you probably are pregnant. Happened to my next door neighbour and she was 20 weeks when she found out! Bit of a shock with a 7 month old

I heard that you can be. I was breastfeeding my daughter and only had one period between having her and getting pregnant with my second. Go to the dr. to be sure though. It can happen even if you are breastfeeding with no period.
