Hey girls! I am new here and am not officially ttc yet. Our daughter was born May 24 2008 and never did take a bottle. She still breastfeeds quite a bit. Probably on average of 7 or so times in a 24 hour period. I have not been visited by AF since before I was pregnant with her and my question is can I still get pregnant? I started on ERINN about six weeks pp and have been on that ever since. It would make sense to me that it couldn't happen till af returned but I wasn't sure. My ob tells me I still need to be on birth control but I don't really see why if I am not ovulating. Can you ovulate and not have any bleeding? Any thoughts or btdt advice would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!

You could get pregnant if you catch that first egg. I haven't had a PPAF either (Lily is 10 months old) but I'm not on BC. If you ovulate and happen to get pregnant that first time then you won't have a period at all.

Hi there! I'm Elise (21) DH is Remy (27) We have 2 lil ones, Eva is nearly 3 and Jayden in 7.5 months. We are NTNP atm, will be 'officially' TTC in Jan/Feb if we haven't fallen pregnant before then.

What Shelley said You can still get pregnant if you ovulate before your first postpartum period. Will you be coming off BC soon? When you do, you could chart your temperature and look for fertile signs to see when your first ovulation will be?

You know, my fertility is so bad whilst nursing I know I am not going to be using BC after (IF) I finally have a second baby! From that point of view its a good thing! But you need to decide just how much you DON'T want to get pregs right now. If you wish not to but wouldn't mind if you get a surprise down the line tehn I'd say you could risk it and like Elise said you could chart or do OPK (ovulation sticks, you can get lots cheap on eBay) to avoid that first egg....

Seperated June 2010 from my husband. One daughter DOB 26/07/2006. BFP 06/01/2011, due september but 'high risk' for premature birth.

Hi. Im Jolene. 31 years old. I suffered three years of a short luteal phase and didnt think I could get pregnant again without medical assistance but fell pregnant by accident and naturally. I am really happy and excited to be having a baby although knowing Im going it alone this time is a bit daunting and scary!

My question is the opposite one lol..can you bleed without ovulating?

Ditto what everyone else said to yours though.

And best of luck!
