I have an 8 month who I breastfeed exclusively, including a few feedings at night, and has also started eating solids.
Four months after she was born my menstrual cycle came back and for three months my cycles have somewhat come on time.
My husband also got a vasectomy done, was confirmed that he was sterile, but I am about a bit over one week late on my period.
I am afraid to do a pregnancy test.
Is this normal? Is there a chance I could be pregnant?
Missed Period while Breastfeeding
My son is almost 10 months old, & I am nursing him exclusively (he won't take a bottle or even a pacifier).
I waited until he was 6 months before I started him on solids, but my period returned about 2 months after he was born, & I have experienced regular monthly periods since. However, my last period was in November, so I have not had a period now in almost 4 months.
I have taken 2 home pregnancy tests, both of which were negative. Is this normal? I'm just wondering if I should see my doctor about the missed periods, or if this is common while breastfeeding. Thanks!
