I have not gotten by period after giving birth on 9-25-14. I am exclusively breastfeeding, but my daughter just started day care, so I pump while she is at day care. I started taking a mini birth control pill 2 months ago, but I still have not gotten my period. I know breastfeeding can delay it, but does that still happen even if I am taking birth control?

Yep it can. You still want to keep taking your birth control because you never know when you may ovulate. But breastfeeding can delay your period. I too took the mini pill with mine and did not get my period back until I started to wean. With one that was at 6 months with the other that was 12 months. Enjoy this time :)
