I am new here and i have been looking for a place like this all over the internet :-)
I live in Denmark in Northern Europe, close to capital Copenhagen. I have a wonderful husband and we have a son who is 15 months now.
We have been TTC for 6 months now, but as i am still breastfeeding things are going rather slow. The reason i finally show up here is a nasty experience i had this weekend. Last week i finally felt our efforts had worked.. I felt pregnant. However i did not expect my period till saturday. Saturday morning i took a pregnancy test, and it was positive. I was extremely happy, and i thought everything was now perfect. But but.. on sunday i had my period and it seems a very early miscarriage.
I am now wondering if this happened because i still breastfeed and as it was a very unpleasant experience, i am seriously wondering if i should stop the breastfeeding now. I would be sad to do so, as both me and my son enjoy it, but recently it has become more and more frustrating, as i in some very unfair way blame him, that i seem unable to concieve because of it. This early miscarriage could ofcourse be for a number of other reasons, but i am scared that the egg failed to implant because of my high lvls of prolactine/breastfeeding.
What should i do? Have many of you had likewise experiences? And if so, do you think it is because of the breastfeeding?
I seem to be unable to find clear statistics or medical facts about the risk of miscarriage linked to breastfeeding. What are your experiences?
