I stopped breastfeeding 1st March, had 2 periods in the first month and feeling up and down- cannot describe it - Dr suggested to start to take combined pill Microgynon 20 but worried I will feel worse - Also heavy bleeding and tough PMT since stopping BF. Note that I was either pregnant or BF for 5 years and now its perhaps my body reverting but did have regular periods despite bf. Im looking for peace as I have two wonderful children and cannot be this PMS monster permenantly - all help appreciated x
