Hormones after breastfeeding

My son has now semi self weaned with a little nudge from me. (3.5)

So for a long time it had been morning and night, the odd nap, though lately he'd forgotten a few days so I decided to draw it to a close as if been feeling very touched out for a month.

A year ago I had to go away for work for 4 days and really noticed the hormonal effect. I'm not feeling it this time; it's now been a week, but I wondered how long any effect on cycles or other hormone settling might continue for? A sort of what to expect? Eg bad pmt?

I haven't been getting mood related issues but my joints/ muscles can be very painful around ovulation and pre menstrual, esp si joint.
