    NFP while breastfeeding

    Hello beautiful ladies, it has been a long time! Hope everyone is doing well, I miss MT! 

    Onto my question.

    My menses have returned as of a year ago, though I haven't noticed any cervical fluid indicating I'm ovulating. I'm nursing frequently, even through the night. The fact my period is regular is surprising to me since in past years my flow didn't return until breastfeeding became infrequent. So is it possible I'm not ovulating? 

    Thank you!

    Hi Azores!!  How old is baby now?  If you are cycling,it's possible you aren't but assume you are ovulating!!!   Are you taking you temp.?.  How's the family?

    Aloha April! :D Sophia turns 2 next month, I have 4 now! Two boys, two girls. My temp fluctuates so much through the month I'm not sure it's reliable, so I haven't taken it seriously... should I try? I'm trying to figure out bc, because I know I'll just keep getting pregnant the way we've been going. I considered Essure which is fast, non surgical, permanent bc... but I'm not so sure about it. Any advice? I have two packs of Lo Loestrin FE  to sample, but... also read the unappealing side effects. Should I just go for the copper iud? In the meantime I'm guessing I'm not ovulating, though I menstruate monthly... is that really possible? How are things with you? How's the restaurant? Is hubby still making awesome furniture?
