periods after breastfeeding

hi dr, I have been breastfeeding since my baby girls birth. She is now almost 12 months old but I have not gotten my menstrual period at all during this time period. Is this normal and when I wean her, how long does it take for my hormones and body to start functioning as normal?

It is normal. Periods usually return within 3 months of stopping breastfeeding.
