Period pains no period???


Hi ladies,

I'm still breastfeeding my 4th baby day and night, she ll be one in a few days and no period as of yet.. I keep getting horrible period pains every few weeks and have been for months.. anyone else experience this?? I did think it was my period gearing up but it's been so long now I don't know?!! It's very normal for me not to have a period until I've more or less stopped feeding as this has been the way with my other 3. Didn't have one for two years with number 2 but never had these pains either x

Could it be something else like an ovarian cyst? These come and go sometimes. Might be worth asking your GP for a check over.

Yes I was thinking that.. I'm going to track them and see if there's any pattern to them and then maybe go to the gp if they don't let up and I don't get my period. Thanks x

Embeth, I experienced those period pains with no periods when I was bf baby #2. I had gotten my period back at 6months postpartum (exclusively bf) with my first, so I expected to get it back at around the same time, but I was wrong. Come 7-8 months postpartum, I just couldn't stand those period like cramps! Finally, at 8.5 months, I weaned my son (not due to those cramps, for health reasons!) and at 9 months I decided to "induce" a period because those cramps were just not leaving. I took 3 capsules of black cohosh over 3 days, and sure enough, my period came! And I got relief from those persistent cramps. I hope you find relief soon. xxx

My baby is almost 4 months and I've been getting the same period like pains for a week now. I was hoping af would just make an appearance but nothing. It's frustrating.

Same here. Most women don't wish for periods, buy I'd love to know what's going on for once.
