Implantation Bleeding While BF

Dancer33 - October 8

Hey. I have a 10 month old and am still BF (not exclusively). My period hasn't returned and we are ttc. I stopped the mini pill half way through the pack last month and tried to count the days to figure out when I would ovulate. Using an opk I got positive readings last Sunday and Monday. Yesterday (7 days after my first positive opk) I started spotting. This morning it was red and had a bunch of clots. If I ovulated last weekd it is pretty early for a period, isn't it? Would stopping the mini pill start my period? Or maybe because I haven't had a period my implantation bleeding is a little bit heavier than normal. Can anybody help me out?

It is common to ovulate late in your cycle if b___stfeeding. I am b___stfeeding and I have periods. We use natural family planning so Its easy for me to see when I ovulate- My last 2 cycles I didn't ovulate until late in my cycle and then got my period a few days later.. I have no idea how the pill affects things though. Its not a normal period flow type bleeding for you then take a pregnancy test

Thanks excited.... So it is common to ovulate late in your cycle while BF? After I posted my question I realized that I wasn't just spotting anymore, I am having my first post-baby period. Whaet is natural family plannin? I use the opk, which should be easier now that I've had a period, but I don't want to miss it. Any advice you can give me would be great. Thx.

Start bbt-basal body temping...Get the book "taking charge of your fertility" or just search Natural Family Planning on google...there are tons of sites with helpful info. Babycenter has lots of good info too! Good luck!
