I have a 4 1/2 old son whom I have nursed once in the past 4 days. I finally have him weaned, but I am late for my period which has been regular since he was 6 weeks old, yet I have atken 3 pregnancy tests and all been negative. Are my horomones just thrown off by me weaning my son???

He is on formula and some table food. Its just strange bc my period has been regular since he was 6 wks old. I nursed my other 2 also and never went through this. I havent nursed him in a wk now. Last week I had the symptoms of m period for about 3 days but never did start. Its krazy!!!

I have been told that breastfeeding can affect your period because of the hormones. It might just be your body adjusting to the change. To be safe, you could see your doctor.

Could be hormonal go and see the doctor.
