Hi girls,
I'm new around here,allow me to introduce myself.
I am as mommy to a 15 month old little boy (on Saturday sniff sniff) previously had a missed miscarriage/d&c before conceiving my son. My son was conceived on pur third cycle,so over easily.
We are now ready to TTC baby # 2!
I am still breastfeeding currently,and will be getting my copper IUD put this week. Does anyone know if these will effect my fertility?

Hello ambie35! Welcome to Mothering! I can't speak to your IUD question, but I can tell you that breastfeeding does affect your fertility. When you breastfeed, your body makes prolactin and that suppresses your fertility. However, the degree to which it affects your fertility varies. Many women get pregnant and have normal pregnancies while nursing. Has your cycle been back and regular?
