No period yet after 11 months

My son is 11 months old and I still haven't had a period since the 6-8 weeks after having him. I am nursing so that might have something to do with it. Is this normal or has any one else had this issue?

  • When I nursed my DD, my period didn't come back until right before she turned a year old. It is perfectly normal when you are nursing. Usually it will come back as you start weaning your baby to solid foods.

  • Completely normal! 13 months here.

    There are some moms who don't get a period for two years. But it's also possible to get pregnant, so take care if you don't want to be!

  • check out my friends site: she has had 9 children. and Yes its normal while you are nursing. Its Gods way of spacing out the children. I had 5 children and I usually went from Pg to nursing to pg to nursing. I usually started at 17 mo or so. Some earlier some at 17 mo. It was a nice break from the 'hassle'. BTW I had 5 in 10 years- on purpose : )

  • Very common. Mine returned about 15 months with both kids who nursed until 18 months and still going at 24 months with this one.
