Hey guys! Long time, no post. Hope everyone is well and can't believe we are getting ready to start celebrating one year with our little pumpkins/turkeys!
I'm wondering if anyone else is having a rough return to their cycles (and please link to previous posts, did a quick search but did not come up with much). My daughter stopped BFing in June at 8 months, my period started a month later. So far, menstruation has been easy and textbook. But ovulation (not on BC, not pregnant) has been terrible. For about a week every month I am sick, crampy, tired, dizzy and very anxious. Everything I would associate with menstrual symptoms, except that it occurs the week I am ovulating. I had a check up with GP, full blood work came back normal. Put in a call to OB-GYN office and was told that is was normal while body readjusts after breastfeeding and to follow-up at yearly in January. Being told that everything seems normal, while feeling so sh*tty is making me feel a little crazy. So any relief tips, suggestions, or just commiserating would be appreciated! Thanks all!
