Breastfeeding & Menstruation

I've been either pregnant or breastfeeding for the last 5 years.. The only time I had a period between kids was when hormonal birth control was making me have a period-and then it was a constant drip for two months. Without the help of hormones, I don't have a period between. My boy was 12 month when got pregnant with my middle daughter (no period). After I stopped the hormonal birth control, I had no period the five months from then until I got pregnant again. From what I understand, it seems to be normal for EBF moms to not get a period, but that doesn't mean you aren't fertile.

    Yep, I agree. I have gotten pregnant while nursing.

      It can work for some as long as baby is nursing every two to three hours around the clock. It suppresses the hormones somehow-but I've only heard it as being successful as long as you only breastfeed and do it every two to three hours.
