Things like stress and medications can affect how quickly your cycle gets going again. It’s not unusual for your menstrual cycle to take a couple months to recover from childbirth. Everyone is different of course, and this may be “normal” for you. If it goes to three months I’d schedule an appointment and get a checkup, just to reassure you if nothing else.

It’s normal, even without breastfeeding some women can go without a cycle for 3 months. Hormonal re-balancing takes time.

Any possibility you could be pregnant?

not intentionally but yes I think there could always be a possibility

It could be your hormones needing time to readjust, but it could also be pregnancy. I’d take a HPT to see what it says. Then, make a doctors appointment either way.

I think you should take a pregnancy test. It certainly could just be hormonal post pregnancy stuff, but if you are having unprotected sex, I think it is just as likely you are pregnant.

god I hope it’s just the hormones ): I’ve taken 2 pregnancy test both being negative

Well, if they are negative, you probably aren’t pregnant.
