Re: How many of you conceived while BFing?

I got pregnant when DD had just turned 12mths old & was nursing frequently. I'd had my AF back since she was 7mths old (took us 5mths to conceive)

Re: How many of you conceived while BFing?

My DD was 14 months and still constantly nursing when I got pregnant with the fembryo She still nurses but I am more a pacifier than a food supplier right now since my milk dried up around 13 weeks. I had started PP AF when she was around 8 months old.

#2 was conceived while nursing before my period ever came back the first time. This one was conceived while but I had my period back.

I did. I tried to get pregnant w/ #2 starting when #1 was 7 months old. I tried for 6 months w/out charting and 3 months w/ charting. So, it took about 9 months total...I got PPAF at 5 months PP and now again 5 months PP, hoping to to get pregnant again around DD#2 first birthday.

Re: How many of you conceived while BFing?

Forgot to mention - my cycles are actually always really regular pp, even while I'm still breastfeeding. But I still have cycles where I don't ovulate. So, regular or not, if you're still nursing you may be not ovulating. You're also a little more likely to get pregnant with twins while nursing as sometimes your body will 'make up for' missing a cycle by spitting out two eggs the next month.

I agree and after having my last 2 only 14 months apart. I was BFing and no AF just ended up pregnant anyways I tried spermacide and it's better than condoms. You can buy it at walmart too.

Re: How many of you conceived while BFing?

i got PPAF at 6 months, and we started charting and trying when dd was 14 months. from charting i learned my luteal phases were deficient. i was ovulating, but only having 3-5 day luteal phases. breast feeding lowers your progesterone, and for me it lowers it a LOT, so my cycle would just crash post ovulation. after 7 cycles of trying i got some prometrium and that month we conceived this baby i took progesterone until 12 weeks and have had no problems because of the nursing. my milk has pretty much dried up but dd still likes to nurse a few times a day.
