What causes irregular periods?

So I got my period at 3 months pp been getting them every month. Now I’m 8 months pp and haven’t gotten them yet. Just curious can this happen when you breastfeed like get a period for a couple months and then it just stops? I’ve been having the worst cramps ever for a couple days now.


I never had a period the whole time I was breastfeeding

Take a test ( if you have engaged in sex) unless you have made a major lifestyle change (exercising more or less, started supplementing or feeding way more than normal). My periods were crazy for the first year and a half PP and I only nursed for 6 months, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Your period can be irregular while breastfeeding but I’m sure a test couldn’t hurt.
