  • Not a dumb question. I didn't have my p for almost 11 months.

  • It is normal. Breastfeeding typically stops you from having "normal" periods for some time. It's pretty normal to have spotting or very light bleeding for a day or two. You will know when you have a "regular" period, lol. Unless you are experiencing pain, or feeling extremely bad, don't worry. Your doctor should have an advice nurse that you can call on to get back into your comfort zone. Remember, even though you are NOT having periods, you CAN still get pregnant.
