Yes, it can. I got my period back at 15 months and it's been sporadic so I invested in a ton of dollar store pregnancy tests to use even though we use protection. :)

For me my cycle is getting longer(33, 35, 38, 42 days.) My period is less panful and a day shorter. I may have to breastfeed until menopause;-)

I have had three periods since my son turned 8 months old. He is 1 now. They vary in length. From 29-44 days. I'm currently on day 36 starting tomorrow awaiting my next period. ***I'm still nursing.***

Yes! Bfeeding totally can mess with your cycle. Ds was 20 months before I had a cycle. Now at 21 months, it is causing me to ovulate way late which makes ttc difficult...
