Hey,

YES, if you were breastfeeding, then yes your cycles have been wonky most likely due to that.  Breastfeeding releases Prolactin which actually inhibits ovulation, so even if you were ovulating just fine, it can cause irregular ovulation!

It may take a few months for your levels to come down since you've stopped, so I won't worry too much.  Hopefully something happens for you soon!

I think that could have a lot to do with it.
