For you breast feeding mamas who don't have a period but are still getting symptoms once a month like the back aches, cramps and chocolate cravings. This ghost period with no actual menstruation is being called a ghost period or the ghost of aunt flo.

Some breastfeeding mothers resume their menstrual cycle sooner than 11 weeks and others after 24 months or more. It's all related to hormones and the differences in nursing "styles" of the mother and baby.
