I'm curious, for those who consumed their placenta in any way (DH encapsulated mine), tell me about your cycles. Have they started back yet?

I went 14 mos with dc#1 before starting to cycle again.This time we encapsulated the placenta and I've taken them regularly (they're almost gone now) for headaches, etc. However, last month, my cycles were starting to "Rev up" again, and I'm pretty sure I ovulated a few days ago :

I was trying to figure out why. I EBF and difference there. The only thing different that's related to hormones is the "placenta pills". They may not have anyhing to do with it, but I'm curious!

My vote probably shouldn't count. I did consume the placenta over 30 days in smoothies but I am only six weeks postpartum so I would be really concerned if my cycles started already.
