With my 1st I had regular periods even though she was exclusively breastfed for 12 1/2 months. With my 2nd and 3rd, once I had my first period, they were all regular. My 4th was breast fed for about 14 months. I had her in August. I had my first period in the following March. Then I didn't have another one until the end of May/beginning of June. I was certain several times I must be pregnant because never before had a I "missed" a period, even when breastfeeding and tested a couple of times during AF's "absence". Then I had a normal period in July, and then I ended up pregnant before the next one would have come along.

So, from my experience anyhow, I've never had a negative test when I was actually pregnant, but my 4th taught me that every pregnancy and nursing experience is different. Now I know that I shouldn't panic if my periods come back irregular at first, but it seems to indicate that I'm becoming fertile again.
