Could you get pregnant Breastfeeding with no period ?

I've been breastfeeding for 12 months now, I havn't had my period, so I'm probably not ovulating, or could I be without having a period... and she still drinks 2-3 times at night. I know that people have gotten pregnant while breastfeeding 2-3 months afterwards but what about no period and about 12 months later?

It is possible. You can ovulate and get pregnant without having your period, if that first egg gets caught.

I never o'd while nursing and didn't get af back until weaning.

2 of my kids I didn't get a period unti 2 months after they were weaned. With Marissa (11 mths) I haven't soley nursed and I've had a period. No way to tell for sure...lots of luck!

I've read that yes you can ovulate and get pregnant.  You usaly ovulate once before you get your first period, that's what brings on the period.

It can go either way.  There is no way to know if you will or won't ovulate before your first cycle.  It's not uncommon for it to be one way or the other.

That's an old wive's tale...you most certainly can get pregnant while breastfeeding even if you haven't started your period.  I know a girl that works with my mom who got pregnant like 8 weeks after she had her baby and she was breastfeeding.

I didn't start my period until 11 months after my daughter was born and I breastfed exclusively only for 6 months.  It's weird but you still can get preggers!
