  • did you have regular periods before you stopped breastfeeding? or was it your first period?

    when i was breastfeeding my periods were really irregular (like 40-60 days), but if you were regular before you stopped, and now you are late, i wouldn't think it would be from stopping bfing. pregnancy is a possibility. but it could be stress or something else as well.

  • When I stopped my period was all messed up, take a test just to be sure, but it is probably hormones!

  • It took a while for my period to come back- probably two months, and then it wasn't regular for about another two months, so unless you think you could be pregnant I wouldn't worry about anything- your body just has to get back into rhythm.
