I'm torn. I'm breastfeeding my toddler rather frequently, between 4-10 times a day. We've been trying to conceive our second since October, and I am on my second cycle of clomid (we used clomid to conceive our DD as we had been trying for 14+ cycles and were diagnosed with unexplained infertility). I am charting and my cycles are regular. Since getting my first PPAF, I have always had a +OPK and a temp shift along with fertile CM around ovulation.
I just went in to my OBGYN today for an ultrasound after getting a + OPK and peak reading on my monitor. The ultrasound showed only very small follicles, none big enough to trigger.
From what I understand, breastfeeding can impact prolactin levels and implantation, but I haven't seen any evidence that breastfeeding contributes to the production of small, unviable follicles in women whose cycles are relatively normal. Am I missing something?
After my appointment, DH and I talked a bit about cutting back on the nursing, but if my problem is clearly follicle development, will weaning even have any impact on my ability to conceive?
