Hello all. I was in the ttc forum a couple of years ago and now I find myself here. I was wondering if I should start charting to avoid even though I have only had 3 pp periods. These "periods" were only a couple of days of spotting with no real bleeding and have occurred on days 36, 35 and 34 respectively. I have had breast tenderness and ewcf off and on with no regularity. I am thinking I might not be ovulating and therefore charting might not be necessary. I am still breastfeeding and cosleep so that means she is eating at night too! Should I go get a basal body temp. thermometer?
Well, if you want to avoid I sure would!
The longer you go post-partum, the more likely you are to ovulate before your period (or so I have read). With you actually having a period, you *are* going to ovulate one of these months. If you want to be certain you don't catch that egg, I would be charting.
