Question

Hello, I've been a part of this community for a while.
I have a question or comments if anyone would like to give their advice.
I have a 9 month old and I breastfeed him for the frist 5 months.
After that it took about a month but I got my period. That was at the end of May, now it's the end of August and I havn't had my period since. I have had spotting once a month. My frist thought was "I"m pregnent again" I took three pregnecy tests and all of them say "no". I thoguht that maybe the tests were wrong but I haven't had any symptoms and I'm wondering if anyone had any info for me.
I know I should go to a doctor but I don't have any benifits and I can't afford to go right now. NOt until the end of September.

Shannon

It took me until I was about 9 months post partum to get any "real" period back. They were very inconsistant. However, I breastfed for a year. After that they were pretty regular, and I was pregnant 2 months later.
It takes a while for your cycle to get back in the flow of things (no pun intended!) after breastfeeding.
