menstrual cycle can late more than 34 days

by Marija
(Macedonia, Skopje)

I still breastfeed my son, he is 15 year month old. I got my menstrual cycle when he was 11 month old.

I had regular menstrual bleeding every month and it was regular coming on 28-32 days. But this month are passed 34 days and still got no menstruation.

I'm not pregnant. My question is, is it possible that the menstrual cycle can late more than 34 days when will come once during breastfeeding, is it possible not to come for two or three months and start again if were three months passed.

Regards,

Marija

Irregular periods
by: Anonymous

It has long been told that as long as you are exclusively breastfeeding your baby, you cannot get pregnant. This is an inaccurate statement. While high prolactin levels (the hormone that is in charge of milk production) can inhibit fertility, you can ovulate before you have a period and still get pregnant.

High prolactin levels can also throw off the body's "regular" cycle. Some days your baby may nurse more than others, and this can change your prolactin levels. This change can lead to irregular periods.

Your periods should regulate once your baby decides to wean, and this by itself is not usually a medical concern.
