I nursed my DS until almost 4 ... DD just turned 2. She has nightweaned but still nurses several times a day. I am having severe ovarian pain and an ultrasound confirmed multiple cysts. My doctor referred me to an acupuncturist and she wants me to take herbs that require me to wean but may be incredibly effective. My doctor already has me on alfalfa and vitex and a cal/mag mix from Standard Process.
I am torn -- I'm in my 40s and want to take this very seriously as the pain is significant and increasing. I am writing this from bed because it hurts to walk. Yet, DD still loves her mama milk.
Any suggestions on how to weigh DD's needs along with my needs to feel well and not develop anything more serious?
