Breastfeeding period ovulation

Common Questions and Answers about Breastfeeding period ovulation


7136384 tn?1390142888 It also depends on if you breastfeed. I didn't have a period for several months after birth because I was breastfeeding exclusively and that can suppress ovulation.
Avatar f tn re breastfeeding it might be a while yet before your period comes back. Breastfeeding tends to hinder that process.
Avatar f tn Breastfeeding can make ovulation and periods irregular but can't cause false positive on a pregnancy test.
403153 tn?1297254495 Maybe I should practise also the pull out method during the ovulation period (together with condoms). But now is hard to know the ovulation period. I haven`t my period yet.
1510239 tn?1364927956 That can stop your cycle but not necessarily stop ovulation.... If you have a normal period then yes that means you are ovulating. ( considering you don't have any health issues ) hope this helped.
293845 tn?1227997530 Yes, you can get pregnant now. Breastfeeding normally delays ovulation but you won't have any way to know for how long. I have breastfed all 5 of my kids and the return of my period has varied from child to child. Don't know if you are breastfeeding. There is no way to know for sure when ovulation will return for you. You won't know for sure until you have your first period but that would mean that you ovulated a couple of weeks before that.
Avatar f tn Yes it can be common to have "crazy temps" while breastfeeding but I agree with you that yours sound normal, but are probably just indicating a cycle where ovulation isn't least not yet! One common thing while breastfeeding is to get your pre ovulation phase stretched out and end up ovulating later and having a random long cycle. So I wouldn't give up hope! You might still ovulate!
590110 tn?1367506741 If you have enough prolactin in your system, it can stop periods and ovulation. No guarantees, though. When you stop breastfeeding, the prolactin flow dies down, and theoretically that is when your periods come back. However, some women who are breastfeeding do get their periods, and others don't get a period before they get pregnant again. Short answer is, don't count on breastfeeding to protect you from pregnancy.
Avatar f tn s experience could have had a lot of other reasons -- taking the test with too-diluted urine, having a delayed ovulation, etc.) Please keep in mind that some women never get their period the entire time they are breastfeeding. Do you absolutely know you ovulated (i.e., you were using an ovulation test kit) or do you just think you did based on the cues of your body? If you actually had a positive on an ovulation test, I would watch for your period and/or take another hpt in a few days.
Avatar n tn I had a period for two days last month on April 11-12. It was exactly six days after my ovulation date so I thought it was implantation bleeding but now, only 21 days later I'm bleeding again. My period came 12 days early this time. Last month it was 8 days early. Is this normal? Should I be concerned? For the past 2 years I've been pretty normal give or take a few days.
Avatar f tn If you have gone without your af returning within a few months after your PP bleeding stopped, chances are it won't return until you start either -supplementing with formula or expressed milk (if you aren't pumping regularly to make up for the missed feedings) -add solids as a feeding replacement -start nursing less frequently or stretching out periods between feedings I finally got my first period this week and CJ is 16 mos old today (28th) I have been dropping some feedings, but h
Avatar f tn m just wondering if anyone has any advice or stories to tell if they have been in a similar situation to mine or has anyone gotten pregnant while breastfeeding and had no period. I love breastfeeding my little girl and want to continue till shes 1.
Avatar f tn I am still breastfeeding but she is also eating solids and sleeping through the night. I got a period a month and a half ago but nothing since and I am not pregnant. Am I ovulating even if I only had one period?
Avatar f tn Yes because you ovulate before your period arrives so you may not have got your first period yet but that could be because you've fertilised the egg that would caused that first period had you become pregnant. It isn't all that common as breastfeeding suppresses ovulation in a lot of women but it not extremely rare either.
Avatar f tn VERY MUCH NOT TRUE Latrice!!! Breastfeeding will typically delay ovulation for most women. The problem is, you may not have known that you ovulated until it's too late, thus the pregnancy occuring. What I mean is that you may go months without a period (after your initial bleed from your delivery). Well, once you have your first period, you will have ovulated a couple of weeks before your period, possibly without even knowing it. So yes, you can get pregnant while breastfeeding.
1346146 tn?1299360497 t had a period yet but I am pretty sure I am ovulating again. anyway did anyone notice that your first ovulation was really painful? Just curious, I've alway had o pains but these are more uncomfortable.
Avatar n tn It is possible to get pregnant again before you have your period. Are you breastfeeding? You could very well already be pregnant if you have not had your first cycle and you are not breastfeeding. Have you taken a pregnancy test?
Avatar n tn Your doc will just use your first day of your last period. Ovulation is not the best for deciding when you because pregnant as sperm can live for a few days.
Avatar m tn depends on if your breastfeeding or not, but in short yes you can get pregnant before you get your period as you ovulate first, then your period follows, so you wont know when your going to ovulate unless your tracking signs of ovulation, many women have been caught out like this :)
997993 tn?1290751148 I've just had my first period and am using ovulation sticks, at day 14 and still no sign of ovulation, maybe I'm one of those ones whose ovulation comes back slowly...
Avatar f tn I had lessened nursing him before and did have a 6 day light period at the end of November (7 weeks ago). After that period, I tracked and tested for ovulation and it never came to my knowledge. I took a pregnancy test today and it was negative. When can I expect the return of ovulation/fertility, and is there anything I can do to quicken its return? Thank you!
Avatar f tn Hello ladies, I'm breastfeeding my 11 month old still and I have heard that breastfeeding is a natural contraception! Is this true?! I got my implanon removed about 2 month ago due to it messing with me and I'm not on any type of birth control! Well I got my first post partum period August 15, 2012, hubby&I had unproteced sex on or anniversary August 29, 2010.
Avatar f tn t get it until they start weaning, some will have it randomly, and some will have it like normal. Same goes for ovulation so I would not count on breastfeeding as a means of birth control.
997993 tn?1290751148 s possible to have periods without ovulating because of breastfeeding. Do you know of anyone that was breastfeeding, resumed their period at 4 months pp that was able to conceive right away being 40+ (soon 41)?
