  • Hi Everybody!

    I am currently breastfeeding my 22 month old daughter.

    I have AF every 28 days for the past 19 months and I have EWCM on day 12,13, and 14 of my cycle.

    Do you think I am ovulating?

  • Based on the EWCM and its timing, my guess is yes... but I would try charting your temp as well (if you can) to see whether you're having the classic ovulation pattern. Are you TTC?

  • I would guess yes. Your cycles are regular, and your daughter is old enough where she isn't nursing like a newborn (ie. 1 time per day vs. every 3 hours) Temping would be definate... but normally by 3 mos a bf mother can't use breastfeeding as a "birth control".

    I've been nursing when pregnant two times now... and am currently tandam nursing my 2 year old and my 2 month old.

  • You are ovulating if you are getting AF regularly....YUP!
