So my son will be 5 months old on the 1st of January and we are still exclusively breastfeeding. Lately, I've been having really crazy, vivid dreams and my face is breaking out really bad.... which in the past correlates to pregnancy for me. I know pregnancy is possible while breastfeeding, so we are making sure we're protected. I feel like I've had ovulation symptoms since 12 weeks post partum or so, however, I've not started my period. Is it possible to keep ovulating, but not have a period?

Yes you can ovulate without having a period. many people get pregnant while breastfeeding.

Very possible. Have you tested? You won't know anything until you do.

It's possible.  A few women on my September 2013 Birth Club on babycenter are already pregnant and two of them were breastfeeding. Most of them are in their 10th to 14th week of pregnancy.

 

I would test to make sure and put your mind at ease.

I know you can get pregnant while breastfeeding. I didn't know if you can ovulate and never get a period. Everything I've read says you ovulate 2 weeks before your returning period while bfing. I tested today and it was negative. Just curious if I've really been ovulating every month or if it's just discharge since I've not had a post partum period yet. @HumbledEnuff @Jules @jessibear16

Well I would assume that one would have to have at least some spotting if ovulation since the old would be coming out. If you haven't had any blood at all then u haven't ovulated. If you had any then most likely you have been ovulating that last couple months. I don't think you can ovulate and not very period after therefore..or at least some discharge. Might be very light.

It's probably discharge. I have been having major discharge since I had Eli. I talked to my OB she said it was normal long as it has no smell.

@HumbledEnuff good to know, thanks and @Jules glad to hear things are going smoothly. My husband works nights and really long shifts so I know what ya mean about being alone majority of the time. It's tough at times, but we manage. I can't wait for them to really be able to play together. My 5 month old is so intrigued by my 2 year old. He just laughs and giggles watching him

Aww that's cute! Yea im looking forward to the day they keep each other entertained. Right now my two year old still needs me for many things but she plays well on her own. And baby is only 3 weeks so everything is still on demand. I'm slowly getting little routine going so she can start sleeping better.

You continue to ovulate while breastfeeding with or without a period, which is why so many end up pregnant afterwards. My period started about 3 or 4 months after birth. My cycle was monthly but not consistent. While you're breastfeeding you are usually irregular so it's hard to determine when you're ovulating.

@mommyof2boys1225 we can't answer that. You need to take a pregnancy test and go to your OBGYN for that answer.
