BFing and menses

Hi, This might be a silly question but do people usually get their periods back after a while, while still BFing? I have low milk supply and on domperidome and goats rue. For some reason, I keep thinking I should have gotten it back by now (DD is 6m old).

It took me 28 months last time and this baby is 18 months old, with not sign of AF returning. Some women get it back in a month or two, some go years, it can all be normal.
I got mine back at 15 months after Griff was born. That was when he night-weaned.

Back at 10 mos after Reese was born, when he suddenly decreased his nursing because he got interested in solids (hadn't really eaten any solids before that). I'm semi-regular now but have LONG and very light periods, like 2+ weeks of spotting but never really getting heavy enough for a pad/cup. It's annoying but I figure that it has to do with BFing hormones.
