Weird periods (breastfeeding 28months)

Ladies I'm now going on 28months breastfeeding my son. I didn't get my first period until he was well over a year old. They've been pretty regular up until last month, it came on the 15th and I normally get them toward the end of the month. Today is the 11th and I just started my period for this month. Had anyone experienced anything like this?

I haven!t had anything like this myself, my period came back at 10.5 months PP and was regular until I got pregnant with my second. My cycles went from 38-42 days before pregnancy to 28-30 days post pregnancy. BFing can definitely do strange things to our cycles and I wouldn't count this out.

Yep. Irregular tends to be regular when breastfeeding.

Definitely. Mine came back at three months with my son, then disappeared when I increased his nursing sessions. Were not regular again until my daughter was at least two, if not three years old.
