Ok I know typically it's the Follicular Phase that changes and the Luteal Phase stays the same.
My question is does it STILL stay the same after the birth of a child and lactational amenorrhea (absence of mentrual cycle due to breastfeeding)? I had lactational amenorrhea for 16 months, ovulated, had an 8 day luteal phase (which is how my first PP cycle with my DD was too and it slowly got longer), and then had my period. We are TTC and this is our first month.
So since after my hormones leveled out last time after my lactational amenorrhea ended and my Luteal Phase was 15 days should I expect it to be 15 days this time as well?
OR can it change after the birth of a baby and lactational amenorrhea?
I'm not sure what my Luteal Phase was before I had my daughter because I was not charting then.
The reason I ask is because I wondering when I should test. Should I just wait until day 18 pass ovulation since that's past normal Luteal Phase times and if I haven't started test then or should I test on day 15 if AF doesn't show up?
**If any of this doesn't make sense just ask and I'll try to explain better. Thanks.Answer Question
