  • Yes it happens, probably even more so if you BF. I didnt have my period for a year after I stopped BF.

  • I haven't had a period in years but I breast feed for two yrs but even before the pregnancy my period was very irregular. I have had 4 pregnancies without having period. (3 miscarriages)

  • I didn't have a period for over ten years. It does happen. The doctor found fibroid tumors in my uterus and fixed that so the periods came back.

  • Aw I'm sorry thats so sad =( I'm still breast feeding my 9 months old. I guess that makes sense that way got pregnant for 9 months, breast feed for 12, then got pregnant before my period came 9 more months, and still breast feeding.

  • I have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) which causes infrequent or absent periods. The longest I've gone is 2.5 yrs without one.

  • Yes I've heard of it, I just expected to get one after the baby started eating food at 8 months but still nothing. Even the SO has comments about never getting it lol.

  • I breastfed for 18 months and didn't get my period back until my baby was 17 months. As long as you've been nursing the baby consistently, the solid food likely won't make an impact.
