Missed Period while breastfeeding..

My DD is 7 months and I'm still breastfeeding pretty frequently and I got my first period at the end of April. I would have been due for AF again this past Monday, I've had some cramping but I haven't got it yet. Is it normal to miss or have irregular periods while you are still breastfeeding?

  • It is very normal to have irregular periods for up to a year after they come back, longer if you keep breastfeeding for longer than that. It's also possible to get pregnant while breastfeeding, so if you have other symptoms take a test.
