I know that it is designed to suppress fertility but can it enhance someone's fertility? I bf dd #2 for 8.5 months, and got ppaf when she was 6 months old. It's only been 6 cycles or so and I am pregnant. Well, this was certainly a surprise because I had to chart everything to pinpoint when I was ovulating when we were ttc the girls, and it took 13 cycles each. I admit I wasn't really paying much attention to my cycles this time, but it seemed like I wasn't o'ing so we weren't being careful.

The only thing we/I did differently is breastfeed Bethie, so I was wondering if those hormones put me back on track, so to speak. Anyone have any insight?
