I think I'm going to have stop breastfeeding altogether. My boy is 29 months and in the last few weeks I've stopped nursing him in the day and am down to just one feed before he goes to sleep and a feed if he wakes in the night (maybe once a week) and a feed first thing in the morning. I have exclusively fed him since he was born; he never took a bottle (he refused!) My periods came back when I stopped co-sleeping with him at about 18 months. I'm definitely ovulating (well about 99% sure based on regular cycles, changes in my CM, I temped last month etc) but AF caught me again this afternoon. Onto the 5th month of TTC... I know that prolactin stops you from ovulating but as I say, I am ovulating. My LP is usually around 12-13 days but the last two cycles I have started spotting on CD10/11 which could perhaps be a luteal defect. After sobbing on and off all day and feeling totally hopeless about why I'm not falling, I spent all evening researching after a friend said in passing, "are you sure it's not the breastfeeding?" I had totally assumed that because my periods came back and that I'm ovulating that breastfeeding would have zero impact on TTC. I think this is proving not to be the case. It seems there are a lot of women who are or who have been in my position whereby they're nursing toddlers, albeit sporadically, and struggling to conceive. It seems to be that low levels of progesterone due to breastfeeding contributes quite massively to not conceiving. So I think my options are (according to good old Dr Google) continue taking the agnus castus, try a B complex supplement, try a fatty diet or - which I think is going to be the most successful - stop breastfeeding. Has anyone got any experience of this or has had a similar experience? Any advice is greatly received!
