I'm 4 months post natal and I stopped bf when DD was 8 weeks, now 18 weeks and I've not had periods return. Is this normal? I thought they would have returned by now and I wonder if I could pregnant still if I wasn't using contraception?

Yes it is possible to become pregnant before your first period (as ovulation is c.2 wks before). POAS?

You most definitely can get pregnant. Periods can also take several months to return (mine took 17 months, but then I was BFing that whole time, so it's not really comparable) but you're still potentially fertile without them.

This happened to me. I was waiting for my periods to return after I'd stopped breastfeeding and started to feel like I had morning sickness. It turned out that I was 9 weeks gone.
