After having my gorgeous babe in December of 2011 (nearing 7months!!) I bled heavily for about 3months (the beautiful after delivery 'period') But since then have not resumed my normal period..
1) I am not breastfeeding
2) Ive always had very irregular periods
3) Yes, we are being intimate but using percausions, and sleep seems to be more important (LOL) so its not overly frequent.

My mom told me she didnt get her period back til I was about a year, but she did breastfeed for 3mos....

Advice???

TIA
