It depends!: When you don't get a period every month, it means you have a hormone imbalance. There are many different types of hormone imbalances, and it's imperative to get to the bottom of which yours is, as each type can have certain medical and reproductive ramifications. See a board certified reproductive endocrinologist to get tested so he/she can most appropriately guide you thereafter.

Seek evaluation: Irregular periods usually indicates ovulatory dysfunction. Since there are many reasons what may bring on ovulatory dysfunction (pcos, hypothalamic amenorrhea, hyperprolacitnemia, perimenopause or poor ovarian reserve, hyperandrogenism, etc.) each with its unique treatment options to conceive, an evaluation is the most important first step.

A 40-year-old member asked:

What is the best method to find basal body temperature?

Not accurate: As you first wake up place a basal body thermometer underneath your tongue for approximately 3 minutes. A digital thermometer is easier and more convenient. Unfortunately basal body temperature taking is very confusing. Any type of movement or any type of activity prior to awakening in taking the temperature will falsely elevated the temperature. Also when the temperature has risen approximately .6 to 1° ovulation has already occurred.

Everything as usual: Make sure you are doing more for your oral hygiene, and stay up on your dental work so that you do not have avoidable dental concerns along the way. A good cleaning is important to get you started. Congrats with the new baby.

Leave them alone: The best thing to do is to leave them alone. Try to get rid of the offending agent, heat, over bundling; consider an office visit if baby's skin does not improve. It may be eczema or another common childhood rash.

Not Likely: Tubal ligations are not 100% effective. If the tubal ligation was done at delivery it may be a little less effective. Never say never in medicine. I have a patient who became pregnant many years after her tubal ligation. It is always a possibility although not as likely.Tubal ligations are generally 99% effective.
