Answer: Your period will typically return about six to eight weeks after you give birth, if you are not breast feeding. If you do breastfeed, the timing for a period to return can vary. Those who practice exclusive breastfeeding might not have a period the entire time they breastfeed. “Exclusive breastfeeding” means that your baby is receiving only your breast milk. But for others, it might return after a couple of months, whether they’re breastfeeding or not. Typically, women who are breastfeeding don’t get their periods as quickly because of the body’s hormones. Prolactin, the hormone needed to produce breast milk, can suppress reproductive hormones. As a result, you don’t ovulate or release an egg for fertilization. Without this process, you most likely won’t menstruate. So itz completely normal to not to get periods when you are breast feeding, but feel free to consult your gynecologist if you still feel it's an issue. Take care
Answer: Hello Dear it is very common if yu regularly breast feed yur baby yu will have irregular periods or no period at all. Once you start outside food to yur baby n breast milk becomes optional once the baby is one year old yu will start yur normal cycle of periods. So don't worry. Take care

Answer: Dear sometimes mom's didn't get period while breastfeeding because of hormonal changes. And some mom's don't get their period after 9-12 months after delivery. So don't worry it's normal. But if any chance you had unprotected intercourse then you can consult with your doctor and check..
