My daughter will be 2 this month and I still have not had a pp period. She is still nursing, so I'm assuming that's attributing to it.  Are there any herbs I can take or something to get it going? I'd rather not take Provera but I know that's an option. I never thought I would actually want it but I'd like to get pregnant again!

I'm bumping this up so hopefully someone will give you suggestions.  I have known some women who don't get their periods back until their toddler weans.

I experience this with each nursling (no AF until they're over 2 yrs old). Vitex is a herb that is a great option while nursing. With my last child, I had weaned her for almost 3 mo and no AF. I had to induce it with progesterone sublingual. You can buy progesterone drops or use progesterone cream. But start with vitex. This time, since I experience this each child, my plan is to 1st try nightweaning. If no AF, then try vitex. If still no AF, then use progesterone.
