Q. I had a healthy baby boy a year ago and my periods still haven't returned. Is something wrong?

A. "It's common for your period to be delayed after pregnancy," says Mary Jane Minkin, M.D., clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Yale University School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut. "For some women, menstruation starts up right away. For others, it can take years. I tell my patients to wait it out during breastfeeding plus six months." Nevertheless, if you're concerned, see your doctor, who can discuss the possibility of using a hormonal medication to jump-start menstruation.

I didn't breastfeed my son and my period came about 2 months later. It does depend if you breastfeed or not, I guess. Hope you get some answers soon!

Everyone is different. When I had my 2 year old I breastfed and didn't have my period for almost 4 months. When I had my 4 year old I didn't breastfeed and got my period about 6-7 weeks later. If everything seems good just enjoy its a good break!!
