My dd is 20 months old. We only nurse 2 times a day, morning and night, (unless she requests a light snack). AF came back to me like 10 months ago. We are now finally ttc.
So, my question is: I'm ovulating, right? I wouldn't have AF if I wasn't, right? I've been pretty regular with the AF, too, so I figured that must mean I do ovulate, even though we are still bfing.

(Is this a pretty active board? I was hoping it would be...but it looks kind of lonesome)

I just poked in here, sorry no one saw this earlier!

If you're getting your period regularly then chances are you are ovulating, yes. If you really want to know you can look into charting as a way of confirming ovulation. Another option would be to use OPKs, but they're kind of expensive after a while and while they're useful at predicting ovulation they don't *confirm* that ovulation did indeed happen. The definitive way to confirm ovulation is by getting a blood test in your luteal phase (after ovulation) but that needs to be ordered by a physician and probably isn't the best option!

You can have bleeding without ovulating, but the chances are pretty good that you are. The best way to know for sure is to chart!
