Has anyone found that they have worse PMS while breastfeeding? I have much worse PMS now--moodiness, no energy, even mid-cycle cramps when ovulating.
PMS worse while bf?
A couple months ago I was depressed (which is abnormal for me) and having awful PMS cramps (also abnormal). After trying various things I decided that it was related to adrenal fatigue (from stress and exhaustion postpartum). I started taking a mega B complex and omega 3 and I felt better within a month - and the cramping went away. I don't know if it was related to breastfeeding, but I definitely felt like it was related to nutrition and not taking good care of myself after the baby.
I did have some serious adrenal fatigue going on but got treated, and while it made me feel worlds better in general it did nothing for this crazy PMS.
