DS 14m is exclusively breast fed but now only feeds at 7pm and likes to have one at 5am (but goes back to sleep after-thank god)! At 11m my periods returned, I was very pleased as DP and I are ttc, I had 4 cycles all fairly regular, then a TWELVE DAY period-most unusual for me, and now my period is 8 days late! I took a test on the day it was due and again when it was 4 days late but both were negative. So my questions are has this happened to anyone else? And I really wanna ttc and am tempted to visit the doctor but I suspect they'll just fob me off or tell me to come back in a few months or (my big fear) not be able to help me unless I give up breast feeding entirely.
You need to be breastfeeding at least every 4hrs for it to reduce your fertility so I doubt that will be the cause. May be you're just having a linfer cycle thus time? Still very early days so I think your right in that the dr will tell you to come back in a few months. I would only visit them just now if you start having bleeds inbetween your periods. Good luck with ttc
