my baby is almost 16 months old and I am not pregnant again! I have not used any birth control for years now. I know breastfeeding delayed the return of fertility some, but they always said"dont rely on bf as birth control, you can still get pregnant". So why arent I????

I really think this is amazing, to go this long and not have it happen. And we do it all the time. LOL

I really, really hope my cycles are getting back to normal now. AF just found me today. I havent been ovulating regularly, my cycles have been about 60 days long. I hate it! Also when I do ovulate my luteal phase is too short. It was 9 days this time, last time it was 8 days. I've been taking B vits to help with this. Any other hints?

sighh..... Can ya tell af just started?

Maybe start taking Evening Primrose Oil. Plus, drinking Red Raspberry Leaf Tea is good for most things fertility/pregnancy related. Neither can hurt, in fact both are beneficial whether you are TTC or not. Good luck, with your LP getting longer it will only be a matter of time

So sorry that it's taking so long! Very frustrating. I have the same situation, I can't believe my baby is over 2yo already and I still am not pregnant with a keeper! Has never happened before, blech!

Hope it will be your time really really soon!!!! I agree on the b vitamins, maybe try some vitex too? Another thing to try would be light therapy, make sure you are outside for at least half an hour in the morning. That has really helped me to decrease my cycle length.

Good luck!

Karen
