I am going through a really bad time now, and I am not sure if my period's return is causing this. My son is 17 months old and still only eating a small amount of solids throughout the day. His nursing barely decreased. He also still nurses at night.
Still, my period returned at 12 months postpartum and my PMS feel worse every time. I thought after 4 months, my hormones might have regulated, but I am experiencing more problems than ever.
Aside from the PMS, I also have worsening acne, that is very severe at times, I am having mood swings and can't seem to keep it together emotionally. I don't want to leave the house.
Now my hair also started falling out again. The same way it fell out 4 months after delivery. In large amounts. Back then I was partially bald and it was devastating.
I can't seem to find anything about raging hormones after the return of a period while breastfeeding, so I am just hoping and praying that someone here knows if this is common.
