Mentruation after pregnancy

Dear Doc

I gave birth in Mar and breastfed for 6 months. It has now almost been 2 months and I still have not menstruated. How long does it normally take for it to return and does mean that I am not ovulating either? I am still on the mini-pill, but due to terrible pigmentation I would rather leave that, if I' m not ovulating anyway.

Thank you

The mini pill causes menstruation to stay away. This is probably the reason. If you have stopped breastfeeding, you should change to something more reliable.
