BBL 034: Breastfeeding and Your Fertility

Fertility while breastfeeding is confusing – even frustrating! I can’t give you all the answers, but I go a long way towards clearing up the confusion in this podcast episode. I discuss signs of returning fertility, how to delay the return of fertility, and how to encourage your cycles if you want to get pregnant again!

In this episode I cover:

  • The truth about breastfeeding as birth control
  • How to participate in breastfeeding fertility trials
  • When will normal fertility return?
  • What steps your body goes through while breastfeeding
  • Cervical fluid changes during breastfeeding
  • What (besides pregnancy) can stop your cycle
  • How stress influences fertility
  • Should you consider weaning to get pregnant?
