Breastfeeding and Periods

Elizabeth - posted on 03/04/2011 ( 1 mom has responded )




I am currently breastfeeding my 7 month old son. I started getting my period again when he was 3 months old (November) and have had 28 day cycles in November, December and January and now, I've got nothing. I'm 5 days late. (No, I am not pregnant again, my husband is away with the Army and has been since November, I haven't had sex since then). Has anyone else had their period for a few months and then have it stop again? I'm usually so regular.

Yup...mine was on again off again for almost an entire year. Give it about another week or so then call your doctor. If your son has had a change in his nursing habits at all (i.e. increase/decrease) this could also be playing with your cycle. I was on birth control while nursing and my period was still all whacko. Make sure you drink lots of water, eat healthy etc etc. I am sure its nothing.
