How to ovulation after delivery?

I am wondering what your experiences are with how long it took to ovulate post-delivery. Before conceiving Amelia, I charted for about 9 months and had an extremely regular, predictable cycle. Now, I'm 11 weeks postpartum and I don't think I'm ovulating at all. My basal temps are lower than they've ever been (low 96s), and I don't get the mid-month temp surge. I'm sure things will return to normal, but how long???

Hi DJA,
How are you feeling? It's all been so recent for you.

I had regular cycles until age 18. They were so heavy that I went on the pill at that time, and that really helped. Stayed on the pill until age 31, so I'm assuming they were regular before pregnancy.

4 months postpartum, while I was still pumping (bfeeding never worked out), I got my period, so I'm assuming I ovulated about 3 1/2 months postpartum, while lactating.

I went back on the pill from approx. November '03 to February 03. Then I didn't have a period for about 3 months. Now this most recent past cycle, I ovulated on day 24 (have been charting since March).

So! There's a long-winded answer to your question.

I'm not sure what's considered normal (i.e., how long you should wait before you see a doctor), but my OB told me 4 or 5 months wasn't unusual at all.

Stress can play a major part on "Oing".... It usually takes our bodies at least 3 to 4 months to get back on track after a birth now, with adding stress it could take longer. It took my body a good 6 months to get back in to a normal pattern.

I think I am finally my O'ing last 2 cycles since my daughter's birth in the beginning of January. It took 2 months for my period to come and the first cycle was weird. So for me it took at least 3 to 4 months to get a normal cycle. I am waiting a couple more to begin trying again.

Wishing you the best!!!

Sounds like we are not abnormal at least. We are just getting to the point of being ready on the TTC front - the doctor seemed to think it was not unreasonable to begin at 3-4 months postpartum if we are comfortable with it. Age is a factor for me, so I don't want to wait too long to start trying. Hopefully things will get back on track soon!!
