Irregular Period

by Adrianna

I understand it is common to have irregular periods while breastfeeding, but I'd like to know if what I'm going through is similar to anyone else.

I started to bleed or spot, I don't know what it exactly was, at 6 Months. I have been exclusively breastfeeding for a year now.

After that it was no period that month, then spotting the next, no period, then actually a period, then another period (which was ridiculously heavy like never before), and then a tiny trace of blood the next time (which was my last).

Anyone else go through this? Thank you.

Me too

I am going through the same thing. I thought I was pregnant but it does not seem to be the case since I have taken 6 pregnancy tests (within 3 weeks of missing my period) & all negative.

I think it is due to hormones fluctuating. Like for instance my son was sleeping through the night for a few months and that's when my period returned & then he started waking 2-3 times a night to feed & that's when I missed my period.

If you change even an little in the amount of feedings I am sure it has an effect!

Thank you for sharing that with me. I was freaking out I might have gotten pregnant. But nope, still irregular periods.

Definitely agree with you with the slightest amount of feeding changes. My daughter is starting to sleep a little longer at night between waking up for feedings. She's 1 year and 1 month now. Still trying to get her to eat solids but it's not happening as far as counting is as a meal. Just eating small things I eat all day. The only consistent thing I try to give her is oatmeal in the morning. But because of all that and her relying on breast milk mainly it's probably making my hormones go up and down haha.

Hi mommies!

Same situation I have right now

Baby is 15 months and I'm 2 weeks delayed already. I have a pregnancy test (will use this tomorrow) my last mens was march 16, until now I have no period.

My hubby and I used calendar method the 10 days before and after.

My first mens Dec 12, 2015 after my baby 1st bday then Jan and Feb is consistent, but I'm kinda worry coz I'm expecting my period this month on 14th, but until now I've got no period.

No plans to add another baby yet and I hope this is only about hormone issues coz I'm also an exclusive breastfeeding mom...

Baby is taking in a lot of milk though I'm trying to feed her solid foods, but she only ate a lil. She took a lot during night time..
Thanks in advance :)
