EBF and no cycle question

Postby southern_rayne » Tue Sep 22, 2015 5:51 pm

First I just want to say thank god for TWW, I have two children who were not planned so now I am trying to baby #3 and can I just say hats off to you ladies who do this long term
My question is since having my youngest son who is 5 months, I have EBF (exclusively breastfed) and as such I haven't had a period yet. With my eldest son (30 months today) I didn't have a period for 9 months PP
I have just started temping (a whole whopping 3 days so far lol) and I know my cycles are all over the place due to endo so I will be starting FertilAid or their tea to try and help regulate hormones
Aside from temping, how would you track fertility? I just bought those cheap OPKs but don't think I'd want to do them everyday just to track
I should note I will be hopefully trying in Jan so I can track ahead of time to optimize conception, although I may cave and try Dec since I can't wait to try and grow my family
I'm pretty much a TTC virgin when it comes to what I can do to boost things to help my chances so any insight would be most welcome. I know the ladies on the TWW due date club I was in with my youngest were the most supportive women, hopefully I can find support here :)

Just be careful that what you take is breastfeeding friendly! Took me 9 months pp to get af back and one cycle to regulate. Good luck!
