Am hoping this is the right forum! My husband and I decided we would TTC after Christmas for number 2. DS is about 10.5 months, and I was exclusively pumping and on the mini pill until he was just over 9 months when I weaned him and then about a week later stopped taking the pill.
So it has been over a month and I still haven't had a period. I've had what I though were signs of AF coming, but nothing! I did a HPT just before Christmas because I thought maybe the cramping, bloating, nausea etc were early pregnancy signs rather than AF signs, but it was negative.
So I'm wondering if it's normal for AF to take this long to return? Should I chat with my GP about it? I wouldn't mind not having AF if I wasn't wanting to TTC... kind of hard to work out if or when I will O without it!
Thanks for any advice/experiences you can share.

From what I understand your period can either return in schedule (not common) or take a few months to get back on track. I wouldn't worry unless you think something is wrong, in which case a chat with your GP should ease your mind.

Thanks! Just wasn't sure as I think everyone else in my mother's group had AF return while still breastfeeding. Will wait a bit longer and see what happens.

Hi there, my AF didn't return until DD was 11 months old and down to 1 BF per day. My periods were always regular (and are again now), but they took ages to come back. I was the last in my mothers group to get theirs back (and have the second eldest child!). So I think it could be normal. I had AF pms symptoms for a few months before I actually had AF. Hope this helps a bit
