I have read in Taking Charge of Your Fertility that your body may try to ovulate a few times in your cycle and then just give up and never actually ovulate. In an anovulatory cycle like this, do you get the extremely fertile CM? If so, how long after the last patch of CM 'til AF (I realize this would not be true AF).
I am asking this because I underwent a laparatomy (surgery to remove ectopic pregnancy) on 10/31. I have had at least 3 patches of fertile CM with one in particular that I remember as extremely fertile. We were given the OK to TTC and so have been. I got a negative on the HPT Saturday. The last patch of CM was 12/2. I am still breastfeeding my toddler. My concern here is that my body now thinks I have a new baby - my toddler! And if that is the case, it could be a long time before I get my cycle back. But, I never get fertile CM with anovulatory cycles due to breastfeeding and I definitely had fertile CM this time. With my last 2 pregnancies, I didn't get a +HPT until around 5 weeks (I always wondered if I produced less hcg due to lactating).
I so desperately want a +HPT for Christmas, but if I am not going to get one, then I would like AF to hurry up so I can move on to the next cycle.
I have not been charting because I really didn't think post-op that I would even want to BD or TTC for quite a while. Thanks for reading this rambling post. I appreciate any input.
