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).
