Brylie is my little IUI baby and while I pray the next one is conceived naturally at home, the possibility of needing at least Clomid to ovulate next time is very real. DH and I are basically trying now. Despite EBF'ing AF showed at exactly 2m pp. My first cycle was 43 days long (not too abnormal for me, sadly) and I am currently on CD 11 of my second cycle. I am monitoring for Ovulation with cervical placement, an ovulation microscope, and CM. I would be temping as DD is sleeping 12 hours at night (thank you chiropractor) but my thermometer still isn't here.

Anyway, I have NO idea if I o'd last month (I got a + OPK but I have PCOS so that can happen and then I may not necessarily ovulate)

So I have read online that its safe to take Clomid while breastfeeding - because I don't want to wean DD at a year necessarily, and at a year is when we're going to seek MA again. Has anyone done Clomid while breastfeeding or know anything about it?

Sorry this is so long!!

Congratulations on your beautiful little girl. Clomid's has not been well studied for its presence in BM or affects on infants and toddlers, however, there is no evidence that it isn't safe. It can suppress lactation in some, but again, many women who take clomid while nursing experience no problems with their supply. You may want to start with a low dose at first to see how your supply responds, then go from there. Best of luck to you!!!
