After having my first I was in a very supportive local moms' group. Pretty much all of my friends got their period/fertility back before me. I was desiring a return to fertility so every time a friend got her first PP period I would ask her if she had made any lifestyle changes that might have contributed. After three friends mentioned that they had started using doTerra's ClaryCalm (a hormone balancing blend) a few weeks before they got their periods, I thought I would give it a try. I started using it on a Monday. It comes in a rollerball and I would apply it to my abdomen in the evenings and the back of my neck in the mornings. By Saturday I saw a temperature rise and stopped applying the oil (it's contraindicated for pregnancy, so I stopped it just in case). On Sunday I had a fallback temperature, but on Monday it went back up and stayed up. So I started taking it on a Monday and had ovulated/conceived by the next Monday. I was shocked and delighted!
I thought it would work just as easily this time, especially because I am further postpartum now than i was then. But last time I had been charting for a while before starting it. This time, I started applying ClaryCalm on Friday March 11th but didn't start charting until Saturday the 12th. I saw 3 low, steady temps and then a rise, fallback, higher rise and so I thought I was on track and stopped applying the oil. Except now I think it's likely that I *didn't* ovulate then and now I have no idea what's going on and so I'm not as confident in my use of the oil or my charting skills


@katealicia , that is super interesting, and despite your one-time "lack of success", I am sure you had something going on there - that seems unlikely to be just a random event for so many of you. Thanks for explaining that! I hope the next cycle (or two) do it for you!

@edubluv , hi - nice to see you, boy your body just doesn't want to make another baby yet?! k/d. Maybe the essential oils would be worth trying?

Speaking of AF, I hope to see her tomorrow, and I had an acupuncture session today that worked on points to shed the lining. I am pretty confident that it will happen (though I already have PPAF of course, and I have never been "late"). I just want to start this cycle finally!!

@SoCaliMommy , you are so on the ball - right on time with April thread! Thanks!!

How exciting @blueteapot , congrats!

So remember in my original post I said i thought it was possible I had ovulated this past Tuesday (March 29)? Well temps and mucous (lack thereof) are looking good, and this morning Fertility Friend agreed with me and threw some crosshairs up there! So I'm now waiting to know! Hopefully I can wait until a week from now (12DPO) to test, but experience tells me that's not likely

Hi all! My son is 16 months and still no PPAF I work full time outside the home. So, in January I stopped pumping. So DS nurses usually when I get home from work about 5pm and then at 8 pm before bed. Then he wakes up sometimes in the middle of the night, we nurse then and then early morning about 5 am before I go to work. I would've thought this would be enough to get PPAF back, but no. I hesitate to night wean because that's our time, but I'm not getting any younger.....


My next thought is to drop the bedtime feed. DH can put LO to bed. Or, drop the get home from work feed which would give me like a 15 hour window with no milk extraction. Which do you guys think would be better to get back PPAF?


And, I see people talk about essential oils. What exactly does that mean?


Thanks! (I think I'll cross post in the breastfeeding section).

@Xerxella , the hormones that regulate your supply and cycle most influenced by nighttime nursing, so if you're looking to drop a feeding I would say the middle of the night one would make the biggest difference. That said, I was able to conceive my second while still nursing my first around the clock by using ClaryCalm essential oil from doTerra. I applied it to the back of my neck in the morning and my abdomen in the evening. It took less than a week. Good luck!

Hey y'all,
So my temps have been really high and everything was looking great, BUT I got BFNs on 12,13, and 14DPO (yesterday). Yesterday I started bleeding and assumed I'd gotten my period. But a few things are puzzling me; The bleeding is light. More than spotting, but way less than an actual period. It's been more than 4 years since I've had a period, but when I did get them the first day was always the heaviest. Also, I'm not really having any cramping. Everything I've heard makes the first PP period out to be uterine torture, and I've had a few twinges at most. And also my temps are still high. Yesterday I temped a few hours before I started bleeding, so I thought my temps would be lower by today. But they're only a tiny bit lower, still .75 degrees above my coverline. I have heard of people getting what they thought was a light period and then finding out they were really pregnant the whole time. What do y'all think?

ETA: I'm also still having nipple pain, nausea, etc., which I thought would stop with AF. When I started bleeding I was disappointed, but I was also relieved to at least know what was going on. Now everything is ambiguous again!

I'm Kate! I

@katealicia , any update? I also hear that PPAF can be weird, but of course, this is also consistent with possible pregnancy. Oh, the torture not knowing.... I hope you get the news you wish!!

OH, and maybe I haven't mentioned (in a while) that this is my cycle!! I have been "waiting to O" for so long because that is exactly what I had to do in order to ttc again this month, but now I hope to be pregnant and confirm pregnancy by turn of this month.

@Oceanspray , fingers crossed for you!
I took a while to respond because I've never really been able to figure out what was going on. At this point I'm pretty sure it was just a regular period. But still very weird. It only lasted 4 days and my temps have stayed above my coverline the whole time. My symptoms (sore nipples, nausea) have cleared, though. I only had cramping the morning of the second day and it was pretty mild, and the bleeding seemed heavy enough to be a real period, even though it really wasn't ever *heavy*. For now I'm going to assume it was a real period. I think we're going to take a break and start trying again in the summer, hoping for a Spring 2017 baby. So for now, I'm waiting to be ready. Good luck, everyone!

Thanks @SoCaliMommy . When do you get to start ttc again? I seem to remember maybe in the late summer or early fall?

Hi ladies! Hope you all are well. I haven't been on in a little while. Wanted to update where we are at. My cycles are regular as far as coming pretty regularly. Only odd thing is that it's 5-8 days later every month and that is not like me at all. What does that mean?!?! Also, this month is the first month we have DTD and not used the withdrawal method. It wasn't that were trying or wanting but more that he had been away for a week which never happens and it just felt right. We would welcome another baby but I mentioned before I have a lot of autoimmune issues and IBS so seems foolish to tax myself any further. Anyway, So twice (may13&14) and here I am 4 days later feeling pretty intense cramping in my left ovary. It Started this morning. I haven't had any signs of ovulation other than a tiny bit of EWCM yesterday morning. Like once when I wiped. Idk. Maybe nothing. Maybe ovulation but seems early if I am not due for my next period until June 5-8? And I ovulate late generally and have a short luteal phase when nursing. So that's my update. Talk to you all again soon!

Hi mamas!

I've been looking forward to getting back into posting on MDC - my June 2015 DDC was such a great source of support and wisdom during my pregnancy and following the birth of my son last year.

He's now nearly 14 mos, and we are still breastfeeding quite a bit, but in the last week or so I've started taking a different tactic to get him to bed for the night, which has resulted in him sleeping MUCH MUCH longer stretches (8+hrs) without nursing, even though we co-sleep So today is cycle day 1 of my first ppaf. I knew that night nursing was a big factor in suppressing ovulation/cycles, but was NOT expecting things to happen quite so quickly! I've never been so excited to see AF before.

I'm more than ready to get started ttc #2 , but DH might need a little more time, so for now I'd like to be in waiting to be ready.

How is everyone else doing?

Mama to DS
