Breastfeeding... 12 month pp... 1 period now nothing.


Hi, I wondered if anyone could bring any light/hope. I have been breastfeeding for 13 months, first period arrived last month. I breastfeed once in the morning and evening. We weren't using any contraception until the period arrived. Within the last month, max, we weren't careful for two occasions. I'm now nearly two weeks late. Does it take a while for periods to regulate whilst breastfeeding? Not ready for another so soon. Thanks

Yes, if you're still nursing then your menstrual cycle can come and go and take a while to regulate. However, i would still recommend a pregnancy test as you ovulate 2 weeks prior to the arrival of your period. Pregnancy is still a possibility

After my second I went 46 days between my first and second periods when I eventually got them back. I then regulated back to my 28 day cycle. After my first my periods were closer together than normal whilst still breastfeeding, they were like 24-26 days apart - it sucked! Breastfeeding can definitely screw with your hormones, but you should take a pregnancy test if you still haven't got your period, it's definitely a possibility.

Normal not to regulate straight away, also normal to get pregnant on first cycle!
