IS IT NORMAL?
I gave birth on 1 December and by 11 January I was already mesntruating. Between January and March I have menstruated 5 times already for a peariod of 4 to 5 days each. I am breastfeeding. Friends and family say usually one should stay for at least 6 months before they could start with their periods. Is there something wrong with me? I'm 27 years of age

There is nothing wrong with you. Not all women don't menstruate while breastfeeding. However, if your periods are irregular, you should go for a check-up.
