    Default no period after stopping breastfeeding

    Hi Gabriela,

    My periods have not returned since i stopped breastfeeding 6 months ago, my little one turns one next week. I have been charting and my temps seem to be all over the place but mainly high. I do walk/ run with the pram everyday could that impact on them not returning. I only excercise for about 30 minutes.
    I am monitoring my cervical mucas and i do seem to have fertile then it changes quickly.

    After i had my first son i did not breastfeed so i got my periods back 6 weeks postpartum.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    It’s unlikely you’re are ovulating and or having fertile mucus exactly. Your discharge may seem more wet/watery because your body is trying to ovulate and the hormonal peaks and troughs can give that impression.

    Sometimes after a period of breastfeeding the body may take a little longer to get back to a regular cycle.

    I’d propose you consider the same things I have recommended on an earlier post:

    I hope this helps.

    Let me know if you have any further questions.
