Womens Health and the case of the missing menstrual cycle

I have a 6 month old son that I am exclusively breastfeeding. I hadnt had a menstrual cycle until about a 6 weeks ago. It was a normal period. Maybe a tad heavy, but I figured that was normal considering I hadn't had one for over a year. But the thing is, it seems to have disappeared again. I am wondering if it is normal for it to come and go while breastfeeding? Does anyone have any experience with this? Or heaven forbid do I need to break out another pregnancy test?

I think it is really common to have it back for one month and then skip the next month before starting to have them regularly after that one skipped month. I ahve heard of that happening to a lot of women after having a baby when it first resumes.
