No period

My baby is 6 months old. I stopped breastfeeding 9 weeks ago and still haven’ t had a period yet. Is this OK?
I do however get period-like pain in my back in lower abdomen. Could this mean that I’ m ovulating or is there something wrong?

It can take a while for a normal period to return after breastfeeding has been stopped. If you are sexually active, I do suggest that you do a pregnancy test and if you do not want to fall pregnant, you should use some form of contraceptive.
