Want to get pregnant but still breastfeeding

If you have the desire to have your children close together in age, you might be considering getting pregnant while you are still breastfeeding. The problem with this is that it is actually really hard to get pregnant while breastfeeding. There are a few ways, however to increase your odds of conceiving while breastfeeding, and helping your ovulation return to normal. These are a few things you can try to increase fertility and chances of getting pregnant while breastfeeding. Because the ConceiveEasy TTC kit is a 100% drug-free solution for conceiving sooner, it is safe to take it while breastfeeding. Everyone is different and some need to stop breastfeeding in order to conceive and others conceive without ever having their cycle.
First of all, if a woman meets all the MAMA (breastfeeding and amenorrhea method) criteria, she only has a 1% chance of becoming pregnant. Also, it could be impossible to get pregnant when ovulation restarts because the luteal phase1 is too short. Finally, it has been noticed that breastfeeding women with normal luteal phases are still less prone to getting pregnant than women who do not breastfeed. Whilst this is frustrating for the broody mom wishing to get knocked up, it is legit in evolutionary terms, it makes sense. Mother Nature knew that if babies were ever going to survive longer than their shrivelled cord stump, Mom couldn’t be getting pregnant anytime soon. The studies show that resumption of menstrual cycling is closely coordinated with changing insulin levels, and whaddya know: insulin is a pretty badass stimulator of ovarian estrogen production (Willis et al 2001). In other words: Sudden gorging can increase your chances of getting pregnant because it raises your insulin levels higher than your body is used to. I came across this article while googling breastfeeding and fertility and shocked to see such hatred on an article like this. Since a woman releases an egg 12-16 days before her expected period, it is possible for women to get pregnant without having periods.
So, the longer you breastfeed, the longer you are likely to have difficulties getting pregnant.


Clinically proven to dramatically increase your chances of conception and help you get pregnant fast from the very first use. There are other ways of getting your body ready for fertility (some of which you’ve mentioned) feeding you child formula has NOTHING!
With the second I weaned completely, but with the third I didn’t and was able to breastfeed three months into my next pregnancy. You know that breastfeeding has considerable benefits that will have a positive impact throughout the child’s life.
For some women, breastfeeding doesn’t have the same importance and the need to withdraw is already there.
Elevated insulin then stimulates ovarian steroid production, causing estrogen levels to rise.
You may be having anovulatory cycles or you may have luteal phase defect, both of which can be maintained through breastfeeding. It is a prolactin inhibitor but in small doses doesn't necessarily affect milk supply (not nearly as much as pregnancy does anyway). I am still breastfeeding my 11 month old son, and we have been hoping for the second pregnancy since he was a few weeks old (I know, crazy - he's a great sleeper).
You can start to ovulate around three months after you begin breastfeeding, but since your period doesn’t arrive until two weeks after you ovulate, you won’t know until it is too late! Some women have no problems getting pregnant while ovulating, and their ovulation returns fairly quickly.

With the fourth pregnancy, unfortunately I did miscarry after becoming pregnant while breast feeding and needed to wean, pass the fetus, and then try for another pregnancy. Some women breastfeed during pregnancy and will even breastfeed different-aged children simultaneously afterwards.
You can also decide to only  take your temperature but it'll be a lot less precise and leaves a lot of room to interpretation errors. It has also been noticed that the cervical mucus is not as fertile during breastfeeding, which could explain part of it.


For some couples getting pregnant again can take time even after the woman has stopped breastfeeding. I do have a rainbow baby girl and am breastfeeding her and wanted a baby close in age to her. That’s what we are going to talk about today, and try to give you the tips and tricks that you will need to get pregnant while you are breastfeeding.
Unfortunately, for some women, their ovulation cycles do not return to normal until they stop breastfeeding completely.
Most of the research into breastfeeding and fertility focuses on developing countries because fertility is a huge issue to those folks.
It’s the same kind of process as seen in anorexia, only in breastfeeding, the mechanism is way more sensitive (Rosetta and Taylor 2009). All we know is that with time and the decrease of breastfeeding frequency, it is more probable for ovulation to restart.
In countries where survival means strenuous daily physical activity and poor nutrition, postpartum fertility can mean the difference between life (mom doesn’t get pregnant and so can sustain her infant), or death (mom gets pregnant and infant #1 perishes). You can always opt for those energy dense foods that come in healthier guises (nuts and honey are stellar examples), but dayuuuum, just look at that cake! If you are breastfeeding day and night, it can be over a year or more before you start to get your period again. We keep trying, hoping to hit that first ovulation, but she is still feeding like crazy!!!! Firstly, I've been there (conceived under 6 month postpartum whilst exclusively breastfeeding), secondly, I've conducted a shed-load of academic research into breastfeeding fertility.
