My DD is now 20 months and my cycle resumed about 10 months ago. I went on the pill at the advice of my doc when I was 17 as I had horrid, 10+ day heavy cycles with cramps that were keeping me out of school. I never went off the pill until I was TTC (15 years later!), and was only off then for 4 months, during which my periods were pretty mild. However, since they've resumed they've been really heavy again and massively unpredictable. I've heard this can be a side effect of nursing so I thought I'd just hang in there as long as DD wants to nurse (she is showing noooo signs of wanting to stop - neither do I, for that matter), but it's starting to make me crazy. I'm weirded out by IUDs but not sure about the pill while nursing. I've heard mini-pills are out there? Just wondering if anyone has any advice/recommendations on this topic...
Thanks in advance!
