Breastfeeding period ovulation

Common Questions and Answers about Breastfeeding period ovulation


Avatar f tn It is important to note that a woman can still become pregnant during her period. If she has a short cycle, and ovulation occurs near her period, the sperm could in theory live long enough to fertilize an egg, as sperm can live for between 3 and 5 days in a woman’s body.
Avatar n tn however i am breastfeeding my 13 week old baby and have had a period a while back i think this may have been caused by taking the pill for a couple of weeks i stoppeed promptly it made me bleed often would that have been a period i stoped taking them when baby was 8weeks old whats the odds of getting your period back so fast and ovulating my baby only feeds around 6 times in 24 hours she sleeps from around 10 at night till 6 in the morning however her last breastfeed is at about 7.
Avatar f tn If my temperature spikes will it have positively been ovulation or can it spike without ovulation. Do you know what I mean? I know you can have a period without ovulating but can you have a temp spike without ovulating? Or does it only spike if you ovulate?
Avatar n tn i am breastfeeding, how long can i expect my period to stay gone? i've been having cramping like i'm gonna start, but nothing!
Avatar n tn I haven't been on the pill since before my first baby, so no advice on that end, but as for the breastfeeding, I started my first period exactly one month after stopping. But you started the pill while you were still breastfeeding... I don't know if that affects your cycle ?
Avatar n tn I stopped breastfeeding my 6 1/2 month old and stopped taking the mini pill, how long before i should get a period so i can start taking the normal pill
Avatar f tn After stopping breastfeeding does anyone know how long until ovulation returns? Can it return before my period? Is it just as hard to get pregnant after I quit breastfeeding before my period returns as it is during breastfeeding? I am so confused and really want to get pregnant again. Any help would be great.
689528 tn?1364139441 I had my baby about 7 months ago. I'm still breastfeeding and have gotten my period since he was 4 months. Every time I ovulate it is painful and then for almost my whole 2 week wait I am crampy off and on and my lower back hurts. I'm wondering if this is normal? Before having my son I could feel twinges of ovulation pains but now it's much more and quite uncomfortable.
Avatar f tn hello, i am breastfeeding my 7mths old baby and my period is not steady. does this affect my ovulation cycle?
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.
11356079 tn?1421361418 but at less than 4 weeks the sac would not be visible and I have no idea when I ovulated because I'm breastfeeding my baby and I haven't had a period since August.... I'm not sure about the sizes and yolk and all of that either. I am so frustrated. My appointment is next month.
7677085 tn?1395377675 Had a period in February and March (was in the hospital for three days not nursing in January). Had a period in July, a period in October, a period in January, and then found out I was expecting again in February! I weaned my daughter about a week before my estimated conception date lol. My midwife told me that's probably what did it!
1325698 tn?1274989917 Was just wondering if this sounds like what any one else has experienced during ovulation. As far as counting guessing from the time of my last period, that's impossible. I have really irregular periods, and haven't had one for months. My gyno thinks its nothing to worry about, but I am beginning to doubt him. Anyway. I would love to hear all of your ovulation experiences.
Avatar f tn day when inserted during your period, but what about if you've had a baby and not had a period yet and are breastfeeding?
866560 tn?1265065161 I was wondering if anyone could tell me what ovulation pain feels like???? I just went to the ladies room to go #1 and after that I went for short walk. I was getting a very uncomfortable but not hurtful pain on the right side down yonder pretty close to where I would imagine my ovaries are, but now it is gone. The kicker is that my temps have been high for about 8 days now so my online tracker thinks that I am 8DPO so I am totally confused. Any advice is good advice...
4157391 tn?1350411537 I gave birth a yr ago and TTC again so my kids will be close in age. I haven't gotten my period since giving birth & I'm still breastfeeding my 14 month old daughter. Is it possible to get pregnant while breastfeeding or better yet since I haven't had my actual period. What should I do to help get pregnang? Thanks ladies!
Avatar f tn So, you cant get pregnant while breastfeeding bc you dnt have a period, which equals no ovulation. Yet, women do get pregnant while bf.. How?
Avatar f tn Me and my partner want to have a brother or sister for her but my periods haven't started yet so I'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.
3138931 tn?1350943918 I Just got pregnant While Breastfeeding. My Period Came Back On its Own The day My Daughter Turned 9 Months. My Periods Were All Over! First One Was 51 Days Then 32 days 32 Days And Then 34 Days. Then I Found Out On Day 33 Of My Next Cycle That I Was pregnant. Its Really Hard To Know At First When You will Ovulate Since Your Body Is Still Regulating All Its Hormones. We Wanted our Babies Close Also And They Will Be 22 Months Apart.
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.
1816154 tn?1463433618 my last child is 3 months old on the 14th. my period has not shown up yet, but I'm breastfeeding exclusively. my husband said that he wants to TTC again. but we have been having unprotected sex since June 19th. if already taken 3 pregnancy test last month and all of them are negative. what are my chances of becoming pregnant since my period has not shown.
9507284 tn?1404232079 We have been active in the last month but i know while nursing postpartum ,the start of menstruation can be a little wacky.So is spotting a sign of fertility/ovulation? Should hubby and i DTD a few days after the spotting? It's hard to know when I've ovulated, and i have not had my first normal period yet.

492921 tn?1321293496 Yes, you will likely ovulate before you get your first period. Becuase it is the ovulation that triggers the whole cycle and the egg release and then the period if fertilisation doesn't occur. Two of my sisters got pregnant with their 4th baby without ever getting a period after their 3rd baby. Both of them were quite surprised to find they were pregnant (both found out about 4 - 5 months along when they started showing and got suspicious). Best wishes.
