    It depends on if you are still breastfeeding and if you use a contraceptive pill/device. Do you do/use any of these?

    Ok. Breast milk production results in high prolactin level which inhibits hormones for menstrual cycle. It's also a way of contraception. So its when you stop breastfeeding and it continues that you can be worried.
