DS2 is now 11 months. My periods returned regulary after his birth even though I exclusively breastfed (same after DS1 was born). But my periods have been very heavy, or at least MUCH heavier than I've ever had before (sorry if TMI, but like a super tampon per hour and I usually still leak some into a pad, too). I have some normal period cramping, but also what feels like intense abdominal muscle spasming, especially when I use tha bathroom (this pain is also present around ovulation). I've heard fibroids can cause heavy periods. Could this be my problem?
