I posted this in TTC, but I realized that maybe it was more generalized fertility...so...
I'm 19 months PP with no PPAF in sight. My daughter nurses down for naps and to sleep at night and a bit overnight. I have no interest in weaning her before she's ready (or night weaning or even cutting one session)...but we've been TTC #2 for 8 months now and I'm getting so frustrated. I feel broken! I don't know anyone personally who has been infertile so long due to breastfeeding.
I did a round of vitex with no results and now on advice of my midwife I've started using progesterone cream (1/4 tsp on thin skin twice a day for two weeks then two weeks off then back on again). She told me to continue to use it until I get pregnant...I've read some things that say it can prevent ovulation and now I'm worried that this isn't going to work.
Have any of you used progesterone cream to bring back your period? Can you share your experiences with me? I'll be at week two on Wednesday. If it's going to work should I see results then (It would be my luck to have my first PPAF over xmas)? Do I need to use it even after I'm pregnant to reduce risk of miscarriage? Or can I stop once I get my cycle back?
Should I keep taking vitex? Is there anything else I can try? I'm also currently taking a b-complex since I heard it can help.
I feel lost and broken and SO ready to be pregnant and tackle an HBAC after a very traumatic first birth. Why won't my uterus cooperate?!
