    does that mean you are going again Kelly???

    wish I knew when I was ovulating so I could plan BDing (PCOS makes it very unclear to know when ovulation is happening)

    Would love to have another one now, hopefully I am pregnant now, wouldn't that be great, no more IVF YIPPEE!!!

    Bel, does observing CM help? Or is that useless with PCOS too?

    yeah not sure, I've been "observing" but not sure whether it works for me or not, but I'll give it a go. Looked like we had "something happening" there last week, and I took full advantage of it, so fingers crossed....

    what about you, going again??

    4 months exactly with Charlie.....I got AF back for the first time on Sunday........so 4 months to the day. He has been sleeping through consistently for a few weeks, so no dount that is what has bought AF back.

    So I have my first AF since he was born at the moment, and to be honest, it is a SHOCKER...........really crampy and painful and achey.....and heavy. Yuk.

    Now I need to start charting again............

    Wow Bel, worth a try - you never know! Our bodies are so unique we never know if we've started ovulating again or not. Have you noticed any fertile mucus since his birth?

    only 2 weeks(ish) ago and took advantage of it, but with my past history, I just didn't even think anything could really happen....

    I don't know, perhaps its wishful thinking...

    How long should it be after you stop BF before AF comes back? Like I said its been almost 6 weeks since I stopped completely and I was weaning for about 3-4 weeks prior to that.

    I didn't notice any fertile CM before because to be honest, I wasn't really looking for it, so it could have been there...

    Bel, I am just charting at the moment to try & figure out my cycle again. Not sure about the TTC for number 3. We are in negotiations still!! I have put my ticker up to try & see how I feel about TTC # 3!

    Best of luck to you though!

    Hey Kate, I guess, because some women can get pg while exclusively BF...

    I also have a question for all you lovelies, I STILL haven't got AF yet, its been seriously nearly 7 weeks since stopping BF completely and I was weaning for about 3 weeks prior to that.

    I had a filthy migraine last night and am wondering if thats a massive shift in my hormones....

    What do you all think? Should I test myself?

    Yes you can. I got pregnant breastfeeding Marisa and I did it observing my CM. Eventually the hormones are going to break through and you will ovulate - the threshold is different for every woman. Check out the article on the main site, Your Period & Ovulation After Baby, in the post natal section for more info.

    Baby Trevor was 1 month old when my AF started. He was on the bottle from the very beginning and he was delivered by c/s.

    Default Contraception

    Devin is 3 months and there is no sign of my AF. My doctor prescibed the pill but how do I know when to take it? Usually I take it on the first Sunday of my period, but does this mean I have to wait till it shows up????
