So I know when you get your periods back especially while BF they can be really weird...but I have always been pretty ON THE SPOT.

I haven't got AF this month yet, she should have been here Wednesday. BFN on all tests....mild cramping (noticeable) but nothing.

I have heard of instances where people get a period but then they dont get another for a while...does this usually happen at 13 months BF? I am so aggravated right now.

Thank you Claire1979!

Yes, this can easily happen. You can still experience this beyond 18 months of nursing, even with depleted output than in previous months, because our bodies all respond differently. Your body will prioritize energy expent to nursing over other things for as long and as much as it deems necessary. Some women can nurse full time and yet get pregnant again while their infant is only around 6 months. Others can take much longer. Also be aware that we are all due for a weird month each year, regardless of circumstances, and anovulation for any reason more typically has the effect of lengthening a woman's cycle rather than shortening it.
I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,
neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us from the love of GOD
that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I wish I could be a little more help. I just quit nursing in November and my cycles have been crazy since I got it back at 2 months PP...I'll get AF and it will be anywhere between 3 and 7 weeks until the next one.
