I nursed my two boys for a total of 7 consecutive years. Child-led weaning after only nursing for cuddles in the am and pm for quite awhile. For the past 6 months I have experienced a period of time during my monthly cycle where my breasts get full and very painful and I feel like I've got a plugged duct. I never leaked - so it just feels like this extreme backup. I've been icing them at this point as I don't want to continue to stimulate milk production. I find myself also feeling depressed at this time - some months heavier than others. It happens about a week after menstruation completes. I've talked to lact. consultants and La Leche and my family dr. and the nurse practitioner at my ob-gyn office. No help. Any thoughts mommas?
