OP - I guess hindisght's wonderful. If you go early, thinking it will take ages, you might get a surprise and have them close together. If you wait, it could take much longer than expected and you might regret it... no-one can ever know how long it will take, but us AC-ers understand that more acutely than most people.
We waited til DS was 10months old as I wanted to breastfeed til he was a year old & I knew the drugs could put him off my milk & cause him to self wean (my FS assured me the drugs would not cause my son harm if he continued to breastfeed).
OT, but just wondered. in relation to this post... had your periods returned by 10 months? Would that be a factor?
We had unexplained infertility, and I had pretty normal cycles before. DS is fully BF and not eating much solid food, 6 months old and I have not had a period yet.
We sort of agreed that we would not use contraception for a year, and then return to IVF if necessary... but we didn't agree on whether this 12 months would only start after AF returned.
I have two frosties, and the call is getting quite strong.
I also wouldn't want to mess with BF, and hope to go until DS is 12 months, but if AF hadn't returned by then, even after weaning, could I just go back to IVF and start a stim, or a medicated FET anyway?
Could they 'kick start' me? Is this the one advantage AC has over natural TTC?
