Hello. I just had my baby Dex earlier this year, and I've been breastfeeding him for the past 9 months. I just got my first period 11 days ago, which went for 6 days. Pre-pregnancy, I had PCOS and my periods would last around 8 days and were very heavy. This one was fairly normal, with only the first couple of days being heavy. I guess I wondered if the more normal period means that my PCOS may have cleared up with the pregnancy... I'm also curious whether I should anticipate a longer/shorter cycle due to the breastfeeding. We dont' know when we're TTC as we are waiting to hear some vital info which might make us have to wait. But we may start trying this cycle if the news isn't what we think it could be. I bought some ovulation tests, but there are only 5 in the pack, and I am just worried about using them at the wrong time. Any advice on when I should check for ovulation? I've never been very good at reading the "other" signs associated with ovulation, so I guess I just want to know when I should start to anticipate ovulation being near... Oh and one last question - if we DID start TTC soon, should I give up breastfeeding? I've heard that it causes your uterus to contract and could cause miscarriage, but I've also heard it's absolutely fine... So I'm confused. Any advice is appreciated.
