I have a 1 year old son who is co sleeping with us and still gets most of his food from breastmilk. He nurses a lot at night.
We are trying to conceive our second soon and I have a question re: my cycle. Despite nursing my son 100% day and night, my cycle returned when he was 16 weeks. It has been regular since then with noticeable cervical mucus midcycle. I had no problem conceiving my son and have always had regular cycle.
I notice that my luteal phase is shorter than before. Before pgcy, it has always been about 11 days or so. It jumped to 12 days when I started taking B6. Now it's more like 9 or 10 days. I'm not taking temperatures right now so I don't know exactly when I ovulate if I do.
Will this prevent future pregnancies? do I have a low progesterone problem? I have had one miscarriage at 5 weeks due to blighted ovum, and I don't want this repeated. I'm not planning to wean my son soon and am planning to tandem nurse.
What should I do?
