A common question I often receive is if a person can use Fertility Awareness to avoid pregnancy after giving birth. The answer is... yes, absolutely!
Whether you're breastfeeding or not, you can keep track of the changes in your fertility to answer the question at the end of every day, "Am I fertile? Yes or No?"
I know it can be really confusing... some people say, "Oh, you can't get pregnant while you're breastfeeding" and then other people say, "You can TOTALLY get pregnant while you're breastfeeding." Both are a little bit right and both are kinda wrong.
It all depends on the person's body returning to fertility after giving birth. Lots of things impact this like frequency of nursing, use of a pacifier, sleeping through the night, and introducing solids. By charting your fertility changes, we can see if you're not fertile or if your body is beginning to become fertile again.
For women, couples, and individuals who are interested in using Fertility Awareness to avoid pregnancy during this season of life, I'd love to teach you how to accurately and confidently use it. Feel free to contact me to schedule a time to meet.
