DS is 22mo and I have not had my first PPAF yet. I will be 37 in a couple of weeks and we really want to start trying for #2. We had unexplained IF while TTC DS. It took over 2 years and IUI with injectables, sooo I am peobably lloking at a long road TTC#2. I am starting to worry that AF will not return. DS still nurses 4-6x a day.
Can someone reassure me that AF will return. I do not know anyone who has gone this long without PPAF.
I am nursing my almost 20 mo old and no PPAF here either (I'm 38) and no sign of her either! Previously, I got it back at 18 mos then 19/20 mos with my second. He nursed until almost 4 and I didn't get a regular period until after I totally weaned him--my cycles were 80-90 days long when they did come back. My surro-babies I nursed/pumped until about 9 mos/6 mos and my period didn't return until 9 mos and 10 mos both times. In my DDC from here, we still keep in touch and there are a handful of us who have 19-21 mo olds and no PPAF yet! I'd also really love another LO and am feeling 'old' fertility wise, and wishing that PPAF would hurry on up!

If it helps to know this, I had years of infertility before my current marriage, and it was over a year before we got pg. I got my PPAF back when my first was 1, (I was 31), and it took over a year to conceive #2 after PPAF.
After #2 was born when I was 34, it was a full 27 months (over 2 years!) before I got PPAF, and on the 3rd cycle, I was pg again! At 37.
When #3 was just about 2, that's when I got PPAF again.
Each time it took so long to get AF back, I wondered if I had menopause or if something was really wrong with me. I'm done wondering, at this point! :)
I'm 39 and waiting to find out if the 3 cycles did it again...AF is late.
Hope this is reassuring.

TTC #2. It took us a year to conceive our daughter. I was hoping to space my babes close together but I'm also feeling a little hopeless about AF's return. Out of my social circle, I'm the only one without PPAF. I have endo, so I've always appreciated long gaps between cycles in the past, but now I just find it depressing.
