been breastfeeding my gerl eversince she was born.. menses still havent come... wonder when it will come... is it normal menses to come late for bf mothers... i hope im not pregnant again..
It's normal.. Mine came after 1 year + of bf.
but pls do not assume that you won't get pregnant.. thats the general misconception.
Breastfeeding is not a form of birth control (neither is the withdrawal method). :P
Even if you are BFing and you dont't get your period, you can still hit the jackpot - happened to a number of my friends.
Usually the lack of menses will occur with women who have been exclusively breastfeeding but it still varies. Some women get it like 4 mths into their menses. Others later. Some over a year. I got mine just before Eva started solid food - when I dropped one of her night feeds. It's normal.
IF you suspect that it's because of the result of a romp with the spouse, then better get a test.

mine came when Jnr turned 8.5 months old. there's no fixed timing.
Mine still MIA but baby is only 2 mths old. Wondering when "aunty" is coming...
