I have been on the pill since ds#2 was 6 weeks old. I have not gotten my period yet (ds is almost 6 months), but I am breastfeeding. Should I be concerned or is that normal?

I wish we could do FAM but we are poor college students and we can't risk having another.

I'm not an expert on pill use while BFing but I do know that after a while on the pill some women occassionally or consistently do not menstruate. Were you ever on the pill before getting pregnant? Did you ever skip AF while on the pill? Another thought is that the pill mimicks pregnancy hormonally and that combined with BFing may result in no period even when taking placebos. Hopefully some mommas with similar experience will respond too.

Cool Breezes,

I was on the pill for 4.5 years pre-baby. I missed 2 periods during that time for no apparant reason (I took an HPT each time). I don't know why but it does happen. Take an HPT and/or call your doc if you're concerned.

The pill can do weird things to you... BF can do weird things to you...

Good luck!
