Totally agree with that. Breast feeding mothers usually notice delay in periods. So I don't think there is any need to worry.

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Congratulations on the birth of your baby!  Because every woman's hormone levels are unique, it's difficult to say when a menstrual cycle will return.  

Are you are breastfeeding?  If so, you can expect additional time without a cycle than someone who is not breastfeeding.  And even more time if you're breastfeeding exclusively. 

Have you been having protected or unprotected sex?  Do you think there is a chance you could be pregnant?  

Make an appointment with your doctor to further investigate.

Be well,
