  • Maybe just hormones off balance, Ive heard of women who breastfeeding not having a period for quite a while. But I would still test for pregnancy for peace of mind and if ur not then make a call to ur doc and see if this is normal, sometimes going on birth control can help you regulate ur period but u need to make sure ur not prego still

  • The estimated pregnancy rate for using condoms perfectly for a year is 3%. That means even with perfect use 3 women out of 100 get pregnant every year using condoms. Typical use is between 10-14%, 1 out of 10 or more.

    Getting pregnant with a 6 month old baby isn't good for your body, isn't good for the baby you are pregnant with, is difficult for your baby, and it's difficult to care for two children so close in age. It's better to wait 2-3 years. If you aren't pregnant using condoms and foam is almost as effective as the pill.
