    Default No period 1 year post partum - Should I be worried?

    My second child is about to turn one next week and still no sign of my period. He still BFs quite frequently day and night but DS1 was the same and my period returned at about 8 months. I started taking the minipill about 3 months ago too. Should I be concerned?

    Mine didn't return until DS was around 14 months old - although I wasn't on the pill, just breastfeeding. I had one AF then managed to get pregnant before she returned

    It couldn't hurt to visit your GP if you're worried.

    Af returned for me when dd was 15mths. I was also still bf and had been on the mini pill since about 3mths pp. I enjoyed the extended break without it
