So, since I am still breastfeeding my 25 month old boy, my periods are not regular at all, even though I just BF at nights, but still...anyway, I started taking Vitex to regulate my cycles, and it worked, after a month, I had a regular period, between 7-12 June. Since I don't know the length of my period, I entered the info in a few fertility calculators and with the default 28 day period, it said I was supposed to ovulate on June 21st.
So, we have been BDing accordingly....and I did have some cramping, on my right side, between 21st-23rd June. So far, so good, BUT....I just don't see any noticeable CM...I do feel a little more 'moist' that other days, but it's not like when I got pregnant with my first child....so, my question is, is it possible to ovulate, without noticeable change in CM?
Anyway....sorry for the long question
Have a wonderful week, and thanks for reading and giving me your input!
I've read that you can ovulate without much CM. Sometimes I don't have much and I was worried that it for sure meant I was not ovulating. I think it can make it a bit more difficult to get pregnant though.
I've heard green tea and evening primrose oil can help as well I'll be trying those next cycle.
The online calendars are WAY off sometimes. The best way to know if you are ovulating is by charting your BBT Also checking CM and CP is another helpful way if charting is not something you can do because of interrupted sleep each night due to feedings etc.
Evening Primrose Oil vitamins are amazing as well as a pill version of mucinex but if you are breastfeeding the mucinex may not be an option for you. Also you can buy Preseed from Wal-Mart,Target, and online to help with efforts as well. Breastfeeding can cause a decline in progesterone which can delay O tremendously and can also affect CM.
I hope you catch your eggie and do not have to worry about this next month
