    Is it possiable to conceive whilst still boobie feeding, my OH and I really want another, we want a close gap, my lil one is just over 6 months, It took months to fall with her, so know it could take a while again, so want to start trying early!!!
    But since having her I have had no AF at all, & just wondering what the chances are of falling pregnant whilst still feeding? Do I give up all hope now?

    I've heard that you have higher fertility while breast feeding, but I don't know for sure.

    You're more fertile after having a baby because your cervix is slightly more open, apparently that's the science behind it. Though they say that you're less likely to get pregnant while breastfeeding but who knows heaps of people get pregnant while breastfeeding. It's because it can take your body longer to menstruate while breastfeeding so if your body is menstruating and you're ovulating it's probably safe to say that you can get pregnant again.

    Good luck hun :dust: :dust:

    I was BFD'ing my daughter for 10mths and never started menstruating again during that time and became pregnant during the 8th month. I never had AF so I had no idea that I ever OV'd or anything. I went to the gyn for a procedure and they happened to do a preg test and it came back pos so then they did a blood test and said I was about 6weeks along....I was totally surprised because I had been told that breastfeeding suppressed ovulation. Anything is possible though.
