Reply To: Maximum number of months before a nursing mother starts menstruating?


Rank: Newbie

A nursing mother can go a very long time without having a period – while the average is around 14 months for those who breastfeed, some women can go years without having their period if they continue to breastfeed frequently. Don’t assume you won’t get pregnant though – a minority of women with no periods (around 6%) will get pregnant within 6 months despite breastfeeding.
