My menstrual cycle is a mess, and the cramps are just debilitating. I posted in Fertility, and have only gotten one response, from someone who says that nursing is to blame. Is it? Can some of you EBF mamas take a moment to weigh in on this? I need some feedback.<br><br><a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=151013" target="_blank">http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=151013</a><br><br>
Thanks!!!

I'm right there with ya! My periods have been coming back since February, but they are so irratic, and if I do happen to possibly O, then I only have a week or so LP? Right now I am expectin AF any time, and I am in such horrible pain! My back, head, shoulder area hurt, and my lower back feels like I'm 80 years old and a hunchback! It's almost nauseating. I never had cramps like this before. Oh, and my face is broke out worse than it ever has! I know it's just the hormones running amuck. Wish I had an answer. Maybe taking something to even out your cyles will help?

Well, i know that my lp is quite short. BUT, i have had quite regular periods and minimal to no cramping. Actually more comfortable and shorter than before i got pg and started nursing. Have you tried EPO or Vitex for helping smooth out your cycles? Neither should dramatically effect either the quality or quantity of your milk.
