I had a bit of a show yesterday, could this be a sign that I`m about to start menstrating again?

Hi Alex. I have a 7 month old son whom I`m currently breastfeeding. I started him on solids at 5 months on the recommendation of my Plunket nurse as his weight gain had slowed right down. I`ve recently started him on 3 meals a day, though he still breastfeeds day and night regularly.
I haven`t started menstrating yet, though for the last week I`ve been feeling occasionally nauseaus with tender breasts when he`s feeding. I had a bit of a show yesterday so was wondering if it might be a sign that I was about to start menstrating again. I took a pregnancy test about a week ago and it was negative.
I really want to try for another baby so I`m anxious to get things back to normal and not sure what to expect with ovulation first off.
I`m hoping that you can help....

Answer: Hi, It is not unusual to have no menstruation as yet. It does not indicate that you are not fertile. Your period will return over the next few months and you should be able to fall pregnant within 6 months if you have no history of infertility. Best wishes, Alex
