My period has come back...then left again

Has anyone else been in this situation? I've been breastfeeding my toddler on demand and my period returned when he turned 2. The first few periods where spot on 28 days, then I got a little aperiodic, 3 weeks, then 6 weeks, and now it's been about 8 weeks and no period. My toddler is now 2 years and 8 months and nursing all the time, night and day. I've taken a home test, I'm not pregnant, and I've been super careful about using condoms. I should mention I'm 45 so maybe I'm approaching peri-menopause?

Nazsmum,

I'm afraid I don't understand, your period went away because you were pregnant a third time?
