No period yet?

My little guy is over a year old and my period STILL hasn't returned. I'm only breastfeeding him a few times a day, and not at all during the night. Should I be concerned?

  • I'm not sure since I did not breast feed. I would say call your doctor. Also, if you don't want to get pregnant make sure you are taking the right precautions because you could ovulate at anytime!
