  • you will have to go to your doctor and see if they can force your periods to become normal if you are ever going to have a chance of prediction with it comes to TTC

  • hun if your period has been gone for over 2 years then i don't think you'll be able to have children. i'm sorry to say that but if you're not bfing then you should have gotten your period in at most a couple months. the most you should go w/o a period is 3 months with everything still being ok

  • and that does not include when you're bfing you can lose your period for up to 8 months when you're bfing, but not 2 years

  • If you aren't having a period, you aren't ovulating, so no, you cant get pregnant. You need to talk to your doctor, they might suggest you seeing a fertility specialist.

  • Because you are breastfeeding, you may not get AF back until you stop.

    "Some women go as long as two years or more without menstruating."

    You might want to look into charting your cervix and discharge.

  • Can I ovulate without having a period?

    Since a woman releases an egg 12-16 days before her expected period, it is possible for women to get pregnant without having periods. Women who are not menstruating due to a certain condition (i.e.…low body weight, breastfeeding, perimenopause) risk the chance of ovulating at any point. For those who want to conceive, the lack of periods could make it more difficult to know the timing of ovulation if you are not charting temperature and cervical fluid changes. But if you are not having periods and wanting to prevent pregnancy, a form of contraception should be used since there is no way to know when ovulation will occur.

  • I haven't had a period in over 4 years- I've had 2 kids in that time and was bfing. I'm still waiting for af to show up... But I'm not worried about never having more kids or having a serious medical problem. Every dr I've talked to says it can take a few months after you're done bfing for your period to return.

    Try to use this ovulation calendar tool to trace your cycle and find the date of ovulation.
