Aside from pregnancy, why would you have menstration 11 weeks post partum, and not again (now 20 weeks post partum)? Not breastfeeding.
Irregular periods: From your question, you've basically had 2 1/2 months without a period. This can be common, but at this point likely hormonal and not due to prolactin (hormone of breastfeeding).

An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more
2 months postpartum. Not breastfeeding. Why haven't i had my period yet? 3 negative pregnancy test! and could i still be pregnant?

So do be careful, but remember that a new baby is a lot for your body to adjust to! ...Read more
