No periods
I have a one year old child, ever since i gave birth i have never had my periods, it only happened once when my little one was 2 months but still it was just small spotting. I am breastfeeding. So is it possible for me to fall pregnant even though i dont have periods.

Most women do not have periods while breastfeeding. This is not reliable as contraception though. You can fall pregnant.
