What the heck is my body doing??? adult content

I am always on here and surfing website after website trying to understand. I know ppl are tired of seeing my questions on this issue. I had an IUD in for 10 months and I have been and I am still breastfeeding my son. While on the IUD I was very very dry and had NO period. So I don't know if the no period is from the breastfeeding or IUD or a combo. I got my IUD out Aug 5th and still NO period. I have been tracking CM. It was sticky, then creamy for almost two weeks, then watery and then I thought I had EWCM but am not sure. I was having slight cramps and bloating but that's gone now. Now it is back to so watery I can't pick it up. I have tested but all BFN. I don't no anymore. I am taking vitex and my son for the past 2 nights has slept 9 hours straight and I cut out a pump session at work and he eats a ton of solid food. I know it takes time but I am just confused.

  • It sounds to me like you aren't ovulating yet. Whether it's from the IUD, the breastfeeding, or something else I'm not sure. If I were you I'd start bbt charting. Since you may need to test for many days, weeks, or even months before it shows you O'd it's the cheapest route. I believe my bbt thermometer was around $6. OPKs are around $1/strip for the cheaper ones. If you stop breastfeeding and still aren't Oing then I'd suggest going to see your Dr as you may have some hormonal issues. Good luck.

  • I had an IUD for only a few months I hated it. It has been two years since I got it out and I am just getting back to normal. I have PCOS as well so really everyones issues are different. But I know that you need to wait it out a little more and just relax it will all happen in its own time.

  • I had an IUD for 5 years before I had my son and never had a problem. I never had a period either. Took it out and got preggo in 2 months. It is just confusing.

  • I have a IUD in and love it. I have no period. Sounds to me you are not ovulating.

  • It sounds to me like you probably haven't ovulated yet but that you body might be trying to.

    You can have times of EWCM off and on for a couple of month before your first postpartum ovulation. It sounds like that is what's happening to you. Are you charting you BBT?
