  • That is normal, call it God's gift for breastfeeding your child lol. I didn't get mine till me dd was 13 months (that was nice not getting it for that long) . If you go on birth control and breastfeed, it has to be a low dose one (not as effective and you have to take it EXACTLY the same time every day or it is useless). Your doctor will prescibe you one, make sure he/she knows you are breastfeeding.

  • This is normal. I haven't gotten my period yet and I breast fed for 4 months. (DS is 10 months old) I am also on Paraguard, the 10 year IUD.

  • I didn't have a period until ds was almost one. I'm nursing my 3 month old dd and still haven't had a period. I love breastfeeding, and love the fact that i don't get my monthly "gift".

  • I nursed until my son was 12 months old. I got my period when he was 10 months old. I didn't use birth control. He's now 15 months old and I'm pregnant with #2. :)

  • It is very normal for nursing mothers to not get there period till they are done nursing or once baby starts to eat more food. With my first it was 6 months and my second 9 months. We will see how long this time. I never use pills. We use a diaphragm.
