Stoped breastfeeding and no period
Hi Doc

I stopped breastfeeding a week ago and i have missed my periods, i was due to menstruate on the 16 but nothing is happening.

I have period pains and other symptoms, it is just not coming out.

I have to admit, my hubby and i have been getting jiggy with it, and i am worried that i might be pregnant again. Although there are no signs of pregnancy.

I am thinking of getting pregnancy tests tonight.

Please help!!!

It can take a while for your period to return after stopping breastfeeding, but pregnancy is also a possibility.
