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?

At times the periods may return a few weeks after you stop breast feeding completely. It's normal.

does "stop breastfeeding" mean completely stop or does it mean that few times breastfeeding in a day? i am asking this question as i did exclusive breastfeeding till 6months but now doing it only twice a day...
