Exclusive breastfeeding is known as a very reliable birth control method for the first six months, or at least that is what I've been told from many moms, because it essentially 'shuts down' the ovulation process.

Personally, I had maybe one or two period's while breastfeeding my lil' one's for the 13 months I exclusively breastfed, but they were far from regular. I used to test every 5 weeks just to make sure I wasn't expecting again, but they were always negative & I wasn't pregnant. I didn't get any regular period's until after about 2 months of stopping breastfeeding.

Is this your first time breastfeeding?
