Can I still ovulate if exclusively breastfeeding for 4mo and haven't had a cycle, what will be the signs of ovulation?
I am breastfeeding; no return of cycle yet. I may have ovulated 1.5 weeks ago. I have preg. Symptoms, but no positive test. Can bfing cause a false neg?
No: No. Not breast feeding. But after giving birth it can take a while for your HCG level (the pregnancy hormone measured in pregnancy tests) to return to 0. Taking a pregnancy test less than 8 weeks after giving birth is frequently positive. Check with your doctor if you are concerned. 2 blood tests two weeks apart can determine if HCG level is going up (pregnant) or down (non pregnant).
I have been on the paragard for 7months. I just recently stopped breastfeeding last week after 9 months. I had sex on my ovulation date I'm 5 days late?
Paragard: If I understand correctly you have Paragard now making pregnancy very unlikely. Also you just stooped breastfeeding so one would expect some menstrual cycle irregularity. If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy.

Could I be pregnant if I had sex on my ovulation day (April 3) my last period was March 20. I'm on the paragard, been on it for 7 month. I just stopped breastfeeding last week after 9 months. I've also had a yeast infection, it's gone now, but now I have a
On Guard Paraguard!!: Think of it this way: the failure rate for a Paraguard IUD is about 0.8%, which means only 8 out of 1000 women using it will become pregnant. Pretty damn good. The failure rate of other IUDs is a lot more, up to 2%! Having sex on or shortly before/after ovulation will increase the chances of a sperm snagging an ovum, but still, your chances are pretty good of avoiding a pregnancy, but not 100%.

Plan b ones step work when ovulation? I've been breastfeeding my daughter of 17 months haven't had a period. Took Plan B 40hrs after unprotected sex.
Yes: Plan b works best when taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex or contraceptive misadventure (failure) by preventing ovulation. Obviously, if you've just ovulated, then that doesn't help but it might prevent fertilization or implantation. Check out http://www. Planbonestep. Com/faqs. Aspx. If you don't want to have another child just yet, go see your doc to discuss your birth control options.

Breastfeeding my 8 month old, not had period since birth. No BC being used, have had white stringy discharge. Sign of ovulation? Or pregnancy?
Rule out pregnancy: There is increased risk of pregnancy during the post partum period if no BC measures are taken. The convenstional wisdom that breast feeding is protective in this regard, is based on anecdotal experience. While u can easily rule out pregnancy now with urine test, please use BC in the future to prevent pregnancy. Ideally you should have a minimal of 2 yrs interval between children. Congratulation
