I have a question. I had my daughter almost 7 months ago. We were breastfeeding and bottle feeding the entire time. When I went back to work in March, we started to do more bottle feeding and breast feeding just twice a day and then just once a day and eventually at 6 months, we stopped breastfeeding all together. My question is that my last period began on June 9th and now now period in July. Even when I was breastfeeding my period was very regular, the only time in my entire life that I was late was when I pregnant last time. I was just wondering if stopping breast feeding, even after doing it for just one time a day can throw off your ovulation and cause your period to be late? My husband and I only had sex one time in the last month and it was with out protection and the day after I noticed the egg white cervical mucus which usually indicates ovulation but that would have been several days off from when I usually ovulate. To make things even more interesting I never had any pregnancy symptoms my entire last pregnancy except for a missed period and here I sit without any symptoms to make me think one way or another other than my lack of a period. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Hard to answer with just that little bit of information, but a number of things can cause delayed ovulation. Stress, travel, diet or exercise changes, etc. Some women's cycles are more sensitive to that sort of stuff than others.
Is it possible that the egg white mucus you saw was seminal fluid from the evening before? They often look almost identical.
