Customer Question

I have a 15 month old. My period came back 5 months ago and was regular every 28 days. Now I am a few days late but a pregnancy test was negative. I am still nursing. Could this be related to nursing?

Hello, I'm Dr Manos, M.D., board certified ObGyn. Lactation can inhibit ovulation and shutdown menses. Over time the ovaries can function but not consistently.

You probably had a cycle but ovulation might have been delayed and your cycle will reset. Wait for this cycle to end with a period and you might reset.
