i am 6 weeks postpartum and still bleeding. i am exclusively bfing but i dont think i will stop bleeding by 56 days postpartum since im almost there.

i have been charting (billings) tp try to get the hang of it, but at 56 days if i am still bleeding how will i know when im fertile? does that make sense?? i dont really know how to word it lol

The chart just starts whenever you start charting. If you don't stop bleeding by day 56, then you consider yourself fertile on any day that you observe bleeding, spotting, or feel the presence of mucus. Each day's observations determine whether you are potentially fertile or not. You can consider yourself infertile and being to apply the Early Day Rules after 3 dry days (no mucus or bleeding felt or seen).

Does that answer your question?

Shawna, if you're "still bleeding" as in you never stopped bleeding, why is it that way? Is it just that you "should" have stopped so they think that means an AF? You may not know this, it isn't like you actually came up with the rules yourself...I was just wondering.

There was a study done the Lactational Ammenhorrhea Method that decided on the day 56 standard. They study found that the pregnancy rate for women who didn't have any bleeding after day 56 was only 2% when the other conditions were met. Continued bleeding or new bleeding after that point was usually related to hormonal fluctuations because of returning fertility. Google Bellagio Consensus for more on that study.
