Lactation and Breastfeeding

If you just had a breastfed baby 4 months ago and your periods came back when he was two months and now I havent gotten my period could I be pregnant or did my periods delay because of breastfeeding?

Yep. I breastfed my son for a year, got pregnant, breastfed my daughter for two years, and never had a period til after that.

I solely breastfed both my children until they were 20 months old, and after both births I started getting periods 6 weeks after I had them

Yes, you can and you can still get pregnant. I've been breastfeeding exclusively for 10 months now and have not had a period. If you are breastfeeding and supplementing with formula or pumping you can get a period easier rather than just breastfeeding alone.

I would think you can take an early response pregnancy test. Because ovulation comes before your period, you wouldn't know without a pregnancy test.

Sometimes breastfeeding will suppress menstruation and ovulation, sometimes it doesn't. Breastfeeding is not a reliable form of contraception.
