I'm new to the board, and just wanted to celebrate the very recent return of my menstraul cycle -- my daughter is 30 months old!! I had a history of amenorrhea (excercise related in my 20's, then post-pill prior to getting pregnant), but never thought it would take this long to resume my cycle after my daughter's breastfeeding has tapered off. Anyway, it's finally back, I'm starting to chart again with the hopes of conceiving soon, and I look forward to the sharing stories and encouragement with others.

By the way, if there are others who had pp amenorrhea for such a prolonged period and who have since conceived, how long did it take before you did conceive?

Welcome and congratulations on PPAF! What a long time to wait! I think temping is a great idea to get an idea on what is going on with your cycles- it can take several very irregular cycles before all the hormones are back in sync! I don't have personal experience with prolonged PP amenorrhea (AF returned at 10 months) but I am sure that there are ladies here who can give you some info! At any rate, welcome to the board and I hope your ttc journey is a short one!

Thanks for the welcome. I'm just taking it one step at a time, and am simply glad to have some sort of cycle back! From your recent posts on the board it seems that you may have some good news to celebrate soon, too. Wishing you the best!
