Anyone experienced late periods after decreasing breastfeeding/weaning baby?

I wasn't like most breastfeeding moms, I have had my period pretty regularly since my daughter was born 6mo ago but I have recently began weaning her off and supplementing foods & formula to the point she does not even need to be breastfed but my period is late and I know that it is possible it is from this change.. has anyone else experienced this?

  • I didn't have a period for ten years after bfing my baby. I was thrilled but the doctor "fixed" that and I got them back!

  • Usually that kind of change indicates pregnancy.

  • to the first comment, did it just stop AFTER you stopped? or did you not have one at all even during? i use contreception and i don't believe there is anyway i could be pregnant i am just looking over different reasons why this might be happening
