I didn't get a period while breastfeeding. I stopped breastfeedling at 11 months, exactly a month later I had the worst period of my life! It wasn't painful, it was just VERY heavy. (Sorry TMI) As for suggestions on getting pregnant, I can't give you any cause I"m having no luck myself. :( Good luck!

Ovulation and breastfeeding - http://lactating101.tripod.com/id44.html
Hope the link helps - I've nursed all 5 of ours. My first I got my period at 8 months, got pg the next month. My 2nd I got my period at 7 months, got pg at 13 months, miscarried, got my period 3 months later, got pg the next month. With my 3rd got my period back at 6 months. Don't remember with my 4th. With my 5th I got my period back at 7 months. So far mine have not been horrible or painful, aside from the normal.
