Breastfeeding can be something that makes it more difficult to conceive. The reason for this is because breast milk production increases the amount of prolactin that is in the body. This hormone has been shown to be a natural birth control item. However, there are ways that women can become pregnant when they are breastfeeding. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

The most important thing is to determine whether you are ovulating. While this is usually apparent when the woman has a period, this doesn’t actually mean that ovulation is occurring. Instead of relying on their period to track their cycle, it is best for women to track their ovulation cycle with an ovulation predictor kit or a basal thermometer instead. You can also use an online ovulation calculator to try to estimate your ovulation days. A basal thermometer is also an effective way to track your ovulation.

For women who are struggling to ovulate while they are breastfeeding, supplementing with formula a few times per day can help. This can help lower the amount of prolactin that is in the body and make it easier for her to ovulate.

One thing to keep in mind is that breastfeeding is not something that will keep a woman from becoming pregnant for the entire time that she is breastfeeding. Usually, after a few months the woman’s body will return to normal and ovulation will begin again. At this point, she should be able to conceive again even while she is breastfeeding.
