So I have a question, when you're first learning a method, you are supposed to abstain for a while so you can establish BIP and stuff. Are you supposed to do that when you start charting after a pregnancy too?

It depends. If LAM applies to you, there's no need to abstain completely while establishing your PP BIP...since you have already have experience making accurate sensation observations. It just takes a little longer to establish it when there are wet SF days interrupting it, but that's no big deal while you're in LAM. Lots of women have time to establish the BIP before they feel ready to resume intercourse anyway.

For a PP Mom who can't count on LAM and needs to TTA, it is necessary to abstain while establishing the PP BIP.

I did. I got my first AF at 6 wks PP with Katie (4 wks with AJ). But even 18 months later I have annovulatory cycles.

I was figuring if I could apply LAM I didn't need to. So good to know. I am hoping I can, last time I had random spotting 9 weeks out, and then turned out I didn't ovulate til like 6 months anyway...*sigh*

Yeah, but all the fertile starts and stops that precede the first O is what gets so difficult to endure. MUCH easier to have established the BIP before all that begins, so that you can recognize whatever infertility comes your way after LAM is over!
