I saw a post where somebody described your hormones having been tossed up in the air during pg. Where they landed after you gave birth/bf eased off didn't always make sense and sometimes you might need hormones to get you back on track? I shouldn't be worried about your health, (but what would I know) but if you want more babies, it's worth checking out well before you want to start trying.
Periods are odd things and can be disrupted by the slightest thing. For your own peace of mind, might be worth checking, but I'm sure other people on here have not had AF return until they've finished bfeeding.
LOL at the biting thing - is there some kind of "Let's give shit bfeeding advice" manual they read?! I was told that too!
My periods returned around this time as I was bf. Until this time my dds had bf on demand round the clock - so must have been bf alot. Some mums find they are period free for a long time. If you're worried then check with doc.
