  • Are you breast feeding? That can happen if you are but you should still use BC if another pregnancy isn't wanted.

  • Oh should have said I was lucky with the last one I BF until 14ish months and got my cycle back when she was 16 months.

  • I breastfed both of mine and didn't get my period until they were done breastfeeding (so 10 months with the first and 15 months with my second)
