No Period? Lock Rss

Hi Alex,
I had my baby girl on 31/12/05 and started on Microlut (mini-pill) after my 6 week appointment with my ob. I was still bleeding for the first 6 weeks after giving birth and since then had little bleeds here and there but no actual period. I have taken the pill every day between the hours of 21:00 and 23:30, I haven't taken a pregnancy test yet and I don't have any feeling that I am pregnant. But I was just wondeirng if this can be normal not to get a period yet?

I am also BF.

Thanks Belinda

Hi Belinda,
Thank you for your enquiry. If you are breast feeding the return of periods can be delayed for several months and sometimes they only return when the baby starts solids at around six months. The mini pill can cause some breakthrough bleeding as your body adjusts to the changes. This may be what you are experiencing.
Best wishes,
Alex.
