Hi Kruti Mehta It is absolutely normal that you might miss your periods for several months after delivery. This is because, as you are breastfeeding your baby causes your prolactin levels(hormone control lactation) to raise this in turn inhibits other hormones which causes menses. This called lactational Amenorrhoea(absence of periods during breastfeeding.
