In brief: Menses ; breast milk

It is not uncommon to have an absence of your period while breastfeeding.
However, ovulation can still occur as well as pregnancy. Check a pregnancy test first and foremost, then when breast feeding has ceased your period will return if you are not pregnant.

In brief: Please Test

I think you very well may need to see your gynecologist, but if you have been sexual without protection it may be wise to get a home pregnancy test.
