    Trying to conceive while nursing

    How difficult is it to conceive while nursing?
    cjl0510 responded:
    It depends on if you have started your period or not yet. If you have, then you can get pregnant just as easily as before- that is if your periods are regular. If you haven't started yet.. then you aren't ovulating, so therefore you can't get pregnant. But you will ovulate before your first period, so you can get pregnant before you actually have it- but you most likely won't be able to plan it if that's what your wondering. Hope that helps.

    Agreed. I know of someone who has been BF for 1.5 yrs and is pregnant. I wasn't able to ovulate until after I stopped BF. It's different for everyone.

    In actuality, you can ovulate while bf'ing and not have your menstrual cycle... that's how many women are tricked that they cannot concieve while bf'ing and end up prego asap!
