Hey ladies,<br>
I haven't been on here in a while, but i am hoping you all can shed some light for me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br>
I have 5 kiddos the youngest 9 months, I have had returned fertility at 6 weeks with all of them despite extended breastfeeding, tandem nursing, and co-sleeping. I have had really irregular cycles the last four times, one that is 55 days long, then 20, then 46, now I am bleeding again on day 15, enough to warrant a pad. I have been charting and there is no signs of pregnancy and this month it would be impossible, think sleeping in separate rooms due to kids colds<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">. So is this ovulation bleeding? I did have signs leading up to ovulation, just when I should have I started spotting heavily, or flowing lightly. I have never had ovulation bleeding in the past, can it just start. Also I am 27 so does that make a difference? I feel a little befuddled, we are not actively trying to get pregnant, but that hasn't ever stopped us before, just not comfortable with other types of bc for differing reasons. Has anyone else ever had this happen? I am confused, just when I think I know my cycle everything changes!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> I have heard that charting is impossible during breastfeeding, but I have never had an issue, in fact I have been pretty 'normal' except longer cycles and early ovulation. Let me know what ya'll think. Thanks in advance!

That doesn't sound like ovulation spotting to me. That's supposed to be just a tiny bit of spotting for a day or two that shouldn't even require a liner, not full on bleeding that requires a pad. I'd guess it's more likely just PP hormones. I have wacky cycles for several months PP after my cycles return.
