I don't post often, but I try to keep up as much as possible. (I'd love to post more, but by the time I've finished reading what I want to, ds is up from his nap!!!
So, here's my situation: I am still nursing my 21 mo ds
. I resumed my period at about his 13mo bday. My cycle has gotten shorter each month - last month, it was 25 days. Now I know that I'm ovulating at day 14 (because of the viscous discharge) so it's clear that the luteal phase of my cycle has been too short - thus not enough progestrone. We had to deal with this when trying to get pregnant with ds - took some vitex and my cycle normalized and we got pregnant. This time, I wanted to see if I could get my cycle back on track nutritionally - so, I cut out sugar, wheat, dairy (except yogurt) and the like (sort of similar to the candida diet). I've still been eating plenty of food, and I am eating meat - so I know that I'm not anemic. My diet has been incredibly healthy - lots of fresh vegis, lean meats, some whole grains and fresh fruit.
The problem - I'm at day 32 and no Aunty Flo!!!
I've taken a pregnancy test and it's come out negative - so, what gives? Any ideas? This past month my ds has been nursing more, but not that much more. My nipples are a little sore. I don't get it!!!
Any words of wisdom from you women out there would be greatly appreciated. And, just so you know, I am considering going to an acupuncturist to straighten this out - but thought I'd check here first.
