LAM, EWCM and other acronyms

Whats the skinny on LAM for TTA? I meet all the criteria for ecological BFing...am I really 98-99.5% safe. DD is 4 months, EBF, no bottles or pacis, feeds on demands, doesnt sleep through the night. The last week Ive had some EWCM and its kinda messing with me! It would suck to be that 2% failure rate....we would like more spacing in our kids than that, eek!

I wouldn't trust breastfeeding as a preventive measure. You ovulate prior to your fppaf and you cn catch that first egg. I know from previous children my fppaf doesn't come until usually a year but I still use protection even with no signs of it coming back yet.

10 dpo and BFN so far raying: I have never been happy to see a negative hpt before...it feels weird. I tested + by 9-10 dpo with my previous pregnancies, so Im hopeful though still not out of the woods.

Re: LAM, EWCM and other acronyms

Glad you got the answer you wanted! If you weren't temping, it's also very possible that you got +OPK without ovulating, but I still wouldn't risk it if you're not prepared for another so soon.

We follow all the rules for LAM and meet the criteria for eco BFing, too, and I tend to get EWCM on and off from 4.5 mths until AF returns at 6mths. I don't actually ovulate until my 3rd cycle PP (and then my LPs are truly dismal until I stop BFing). I start charting again pretty much immediately--usually within 6-8 weeks after the birth, so I'm confident in my case, but I still won't chance it, just in case it ends up different this time.
