Re: TTA while breastfeeding Advice

I suggest the sympto thermal method of NFP as taught by CCL. It cross checks three fertility signs for greater accuracy. Those signs are temp., cervical mucus, and cervical position. I am not a fan of of NFP methods that only track cervical mucus especially when tta while breastfeeding. Using any type of NFP is a bit trickier to use while breastfeeding because you are not cycling (typically). When you start gearing up to become fertile the signs are harder to interpret especially mucus.

Also, some woman whether breastfeeding or not may have all the time mucus do to hormone or dietary issues. Due to this they will be abstaining a lot.
