Ttc#2 no ppaf!

Postby snookersnoo » Mon Oct 14, 2013 9:52 am

Hi everyone! I see this board isn't very active, but hoping to find some advice! My son is almost 11 mo old and I have not had any ppaf! I'm breastfeeding approx 5 times in a 24 hr period, or less. I'm having lots of sharp cramps, changes in cm, and general signs that af might be coming, but nothin yet! Is anyone or has anyone been in this situation? Are all the changes in cm normal during bf'ing or is this really a sign my cycle may be coming back? Tia!

Breastfeeding can do some wacky things to your hormones. My son is a year old, and I got my ppaf back at only 8 weeks :( Then 4 months later she stopped and I had another 6 month break. My guess is that bfeeding hormones stopped it. Then I weaned my son at 13 months and af came back again. I also took vitex to encourage af to return (as I wanted to begin ttc #2). My midwife recommended it and it worked! So I recommend charting and temping to know where you are in your cycle, and take vitex if you want af to come back :)
