Question for a friend

Her period is 47 days late but she is nursing heavily. Can this cause a change in period hormones? She took multiple test in February that were negative. She heard that nursing can cause a stop of periods or change in hormones that can cause pauses in periods? She gonna do another test tomorrow.

I’ve heard that breastfeeding can pause your period. Some women don’t get them back until they are done nursing. I got mine about 2.5 months postpartum and was exclusively BF. So it’s not the same for everyone. Contact her OB if she’s concerned.

How long post partum? I didnt have a period until I quit breastfeeding at like 14 months PP.

Thank you all so much. Her baby is 5 months and she hasn’t had a period in the last 47 days but she tested in February and tested again yesterday and it is still negative.
