It is too early if you are not ovulating. You may be like me and get AF back (even full time breastfeeding) by 3 months PP, or be like others who have a 2 year old that only nurses at night and still has no AF. Time will tell. I have been using my OvaTel since I stopped bleeding PP. I am having periods, but no ovulation yet. I also track my cycles for length. I got PG with my last baby exactly 6 months PP from my middle boy.

Re: New Here!

I got preg. with my first very easily also. Had a miscarriage in June, got preg. in Aug. LOL, then got preg. with my 2nd DS when I was only 12wks. PP. Then I decided to wait until 20wks. pp to try for our 3rd DS and got preg. then. So it was easy with all 3, even with only being 12wks. pp. If I had tried to get preg. with my 3rd when my 2nd was 12wks. I probably could have, but didn't even try. I don't think it's ever TOO early to test....just maybe might take a tad bit longer the earlier you try. As far as when cycle will be on track, I have no idea since I don't even know about my own crappy cycle right now.

Re: New Here!

I think I should get an ovulation thing. I was looking at one in Target, what is a good rule of thumb for these things? Are there things to look out for, and what exactly do you test to see if youre ovulating?

Re: New Here!

There are 2 different types of ovulation predictor kits - saliva and urine. OPKs use urine to help you detect the surge of LH (lutenizing hormone) that occurs 12-48 hours prior to ovulation. OvaTel uses saliva to detect your fertility window - 5 days before ovulation.

What you will get will depend on you. I prefer the saliva scope as I do not want to spend money each month on urine sticks. The 3 years it took me to get my 21 month old killed my bank account. I spent at least $11 each month in OPKs. OvaTel cost is once.
