AF and nursing PIOG

So I know that nursing can make AF stay away or be irregular for some. But I was wondering if your period can come back regular for a few months and then go away again. When I pumped for my DS, my period stayed away for the entire time. It was great!!! I pumped for 8 months with him. Well with my youngest DD that I am currently pumping for, AF came back after only 6 months. It has been completely regular for 3 months now, every 28 days I wake up with it. Except now. Yesterday morning I should have gotten it and nothing yet. Should I be concerned or even better, could she be gone again??? What's everyone's experiencs with this? Thanks ladies! Oh! And I'm normally a very regular person when I'm not pumping as well.

Are you on a form of birth control?

If yes, then my bet is just normal AF abnormality due to nursing.  With my first, AF stayed away totally and completely until a couple months even after I stopped  nursing.  I had no period for 10 months.  But with my second child, it would come and go and be sort of weird and unpredictable for the entire 16 months I breastfed him.

If I am pregnant then I am also going to play the lottery because we only did the deed one time and he pulled out!! I know, not always effective. But I would think the chances are pretty slim.

No, I am not on any form of birth control. But like I said, I would drop my jaw if it happened based on the odds. I'm really hoping af has decided to take another nursing hiatus :)

So still no AF. I am having DH pick up a test on his way home. I was going to give it a week but I decided that if I am I would rather just know now and if I'm not then I can stop worrying about it! Lol! Not sure yet if I will test tonight or just wait it out until morning to give it another full day to come. I will keep you posted!

My brother was a pull out baby. The pull out method is NOT effective. There is a thing called Pre-cum that is full of sperm too. Meaning he can get sperm in you BEFORE he ejaculates. If you are not pregnant and don't want to be I would suggest picking up some sort of birth control ASAP and stop using the pull out method.
