missed my period

Have you had a period since delivery? Many women will not have a period for MONTHS after having a baby. Usually you will bleed for about 6 weeks after the baby, and that is not to be confused with a period. Wondering if that may be the issue. Even if you have started having periods again, which is pretty soon after delivery, it can be sporadic until your hormones regulate.

Ok, well, exclusive breastfeeding CAN delay your period, but I wouldn't rely on it. You definitely can't use it as birth control, but a lot of people seem to think it is reliable, hence my question.
If you used a condom and used it properly, you may or may not be pregnant. I'd do a test, but it is also possible it is just delayed because you were breastfeeding.
