Also, stress does not lead to infertility. Stress can delay ovulation, however,

Oh, and I found the study the mentions the 41%. It does not say that chances of conception are 41% lower.
Thank you. I knew that 41% figure had to be wrong. It had me scared for a while.

The study's abstract says that "41% of first ovulations had luteal phase defects." Since the transition to fertility is gradual, this makes complete sense. I've done some looking, and I can't find ANYTHING about fertility levels during nursing other than 1st menses, 1st ovulation, and fertility after weaning info. What about those of us that have been nursing for a while and have had AF return? :
