Q:

Hi. my daughter is 9months old. normal delivery. I breastfeeded her for 6months and now breastfeeding only twice a day but I am not getting my periods yet. When can I expect my periods? Is it an alarming sign on my health and do I need to visit a doctor?



this is normal. I did not get my periods for 7 months. However do check to rule out pregnancy.

For some women period return once you stop breast feeding and this is normal. Do remember to use safe contraception as it is possible for you to get pregnant even if your cycle has not resumed.
