Once you ARE ovulating, then you have the issue of what’s happening AFTER.
This can interfere with the estrogen and progesterone that are needed to get pregnant.
Prolactin suppresses estrogen, which can make it difficult to ovulate. It also appears that progesterone levels can be too low in the second half of your cycle, meaning that your luteal phase (the time between when you ovulate and when you would expect your period) may be too short for your embryo (if one was actually created) to implant.
It’s a good idea to start having sex a few days before your ovulation if you know when it will occur.
If you don’t, chart for a few months to figure out about when it’s occurring, as well as to get familiar with your body and your signs.
