How to get pregnant while breastfeeding
Trying to conceive while breastfeeding can be a little tricky , especially if you haven't had you period yet. Breastfeeding changes the hormones in your body and makes the usual signs of symptoms of ovulation less obvious. Breastfeeding can also cause your ovulation to be delayed for many months.
If you period has returned while breastfeeding you can go ahead and try to conceive. You might find that you are drier down there so make sure to use a lubricate that is safe for trying to conceive. If you have a hard time tracking your cycles or if you are having irregular cycles an ovulation predictor kit might be your best bet.
If you period has not returned yet you still might be able to get pregnant because you ovulate and are fertile two weeks before you have your first postpartum period. If you are willing to take some time getting pregnant just have sex every few days until your cycle returns and hopefully you will catch the egg and get pregnant. If you want to get pregnant soon try an ovulation predictor kit and see if you have any signs of ovulation.
It is perfect safe to breastfeed while trying to conceive and during pregnancy. If you have any concerns please talk to your doctor or a lactation consult. Relax and give it some time. Good luck!
I don't think I'll be looking to get pregnant again so soon, but I'm sure there are lots of moms here that will find this really handy.
