this may not be the right place but I wasn't sure where else to post. I stopped bf altogether about 6 weeks ago after cutting out feeds slowly one by one. I was feeding for 4.5months. I'm worried that I haven't got my period yet, should I be? We haven't had unprotected sex and as far as we know no accidents but I can't help feeling a bit panicky. I'm too scared to take a pregnancy test!

I only bf my DS1 for 2 weeks and didn't get periods for 6 months. Everyone is different wrt periods returning. Some people get them back whilst still feeding, others take ages for them to return.
