I'm almost 7 weeks pp, but I don't qualify for LAM since I sometimes give LO some expressed milk. I had over 2 weeks of unchanging CM and VS, so I established a BIP. Then I had 2 days of light spotting. I of course considered it potentially fertile, but then I went back to the BIP I had established before the spotting. Can I still consider it infertile, or did the spotting kind of reset things?

I'm pretty sure any bleeding prior to 56 days pp is considered part of lochia... Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

The 56 day thing only applies if you meet the conditions for LAM, which the OP does not because of the expressed milk feedings.

To the OP - you were exactly right to consider the spotting fertile (plus 3 days after), and yes - you can still use the BIP you established. You can continue to use it until you observe your first PP ovulation. After that, you have to reset your BIP.

Ugh, I'm about to ovulate for the first time (probably hit peak tomorrow or the next day I'd guess) and I don't like that reset your BIP bit there that Shawna said...lol

Well *if* you do reach Peak Christen, you stil get to use the Peak rule before worrying about resetting the BIP. No more BIP until the next cycle!

Yes! Woo, and yesterday turned out to be peak, so now if this is like my others I'll have AF in about 9 days because my first one has traditionally been short.

Yeah, but how long does it normally take to establish BIP? Cuz dh and I have a really bad history of not being able to be good and abstain on trips and we're about to take one...I think we may be in trouble...we seriously have issues here lol.

Well there's no law that you have to be good about abstaining! Only if it's necessary to TTA.

It takes 3 cycles to re-establish a cycling BIP. Unless your BIP is dry (nothing felt, nothing seen). That's automatically infertile for everyone.

7 people and no full-time job in the house...it should be necessary, shouldn't it? And yet...but I just can't do another pregnancy right now. Maybe someday down the road, with this baby sleeping in my arms it would be hard to imagine not wanting another one someday...but I know that I think there are some good things to being done too...
