Just wondering if anyone knows how to bring on AF quicker. DD is 5 mths old and we were hoping to try IVF again at least once before she turned 6 mths. I weaned her off BFing but still nothing. Any ideas? Have u seen a naturopath or acupunture?

How to bring on AF after giving birth

Eta-only thing I can think of other than alternative therapies is Provera.

How long ago did you wean your dd?
With my last two babies, it was 4 weeks from the day I completely stopped breast feeding.
(My first baby would have been about 4 weeks after weaning as well- I ovulated 2 weeks after I stopped bfeeding her...except I fell pregnant on that cycle, so didn't get my period back at all).
fingers crossed it arrives soon

I'd try acupuncture first if you were wanting to try something yourselves first.

Traveling a different timezone did it for me, and I was still BFing. I was stoked as had the same goal as you I'd try Chinese medicine tho if you're not off on an OS trip anytime soon..

I stopped completely BF about 10 days ago but nearly two months just one pr two feeds. See how I ago over the next few weeks then might see my GP first.

It can take a few weeks to a few months for AF to return after stopping BFing. With my 4 daughters it varied from 4 weeks to 6 months after stopping.
As someone has suggested though Provera may work. I know when I've had Provera in the past the moment I stopped taking the tablets within 24-48 hours AF would arrive.
I'd give yourself a few more weeks though considering it's only 10 days since you completely stopped.

Why did you take provera initially? Was it to bring on AF? Might speak to my GP about it.
