Hi Nithiya.. First of all congratulations and Hope you are enjoying this new phase.. Well periods do fluctuate and sometimes appear 3 - 6 months after delivery.. once they start it is bound to be irregular also.. so dont be alarmed by this when it happens.. You can consult your gynaec for professional advice on it however it should appear anytime soon

Dr. Payal M

you can get pregnant as the absence of periods is not a very reliable marker .hence its safer to use a contraceptive, always. talk to your gynec about what will suit you the best.

hi nithiya. my baby was born on July 2016. I didn't get my periods till Jan. I wasn't keeping well as a result of that. pregnancy results were negative. it is said when u r breastfeeding the periods tend to get delayed. but I was feeling very unwell because of the absence of periods so I went to my gynaecologist and he gave me meds for it. and now I'm getting regular periods. but do get a pregnancy test done also
