Hello and thanks for all the support and information on this message board!


I was wondering if others could chime in on how long it was before they became fully fertile and returned to normal cycles after AF returned while still BF.


We have a 27 month old son who is BF once a day (just before sleep), and I have had 7 cycles now.

Hi Emy! I'm going to chime in a little, I can't answer all your questions but it seems like you and I have very similar cycles at the moment.


My dd is 21 months and I've had about 4 cycles, I think I'm on the 5th...not for sure would have to check. Everything you discribe is familiar to me even the odd spotting. I track CM and CP but not temps too and I've realized through experiance and research that while those ways used to be very reliable for me, while BF'd

Yeah I am on the smaller side at 5'3" and 125lbs. Thats an interesting theory your husband has. Because I only nurse my daughter twice, one before bedtime and once around 4am
