Menstruation after giving birth

Generally we know that women who don't breastfeed find that their cycles resume very quickly, and on the other hand women who are fully or nearly fully breastfeeding may find their menstruation cycle does not starts within the first 6 months.

Your chances of ovulating are only about 2% you meet the following three criteria:

•Your menses have not returned

•You are breastfeeding

•Your baby is less than six months old

So mine is not resumed yet, it's been 8+ months. A bit worry though. My sis in law is a breastfeeding mom, she had her menstrual cycle started after 7 months, friend of mine also breastfeeding mom, period came after 3-4 months. But I have another friend, her menses started after a year giving birth.

Hmm.. I think it's normal kot but a still.. a bit worry. By right, I should have done PAP smear after 6 months when I checked with doctor he said wait until I have my period.

So what's your story? This is perfectly normal right? ;)
