I know that a friend of mine is trying to have another baby and is having kind of a hard time getting pregnant. I know that she's still breastfeeding her almost 3 year old and plans to let him wean himself. I've had a lot of personal experience with infertility including some issues with hyperprolactemia as well as a medical background. Prolactin which is essential to lactation causes ovulation to become less frequent if not stop(some women are different I know) and can cause drying of the cervical mucus which is needed for sperm to survive. Also from what I've heard from other people most reproductive specialists won't start medications if a woman is still nursing.
Is there a polite way to bring this up as a friend whose had similar issues or is always taboo?
This is in no way a he's too old to be breastfed or that it isn't important to them. I just don't want to see a friend suffer the pain of infertility if it can be fixed by slowly changing a few lifestyle things.
