? for those who BF and their cycles have returned.

I know a lot of people say their milk supply decreases during AF.  Does it decrease before AF shows up or just during?  Mine hasn't returned yet, but the last two days now I have produced a LOT less during my pumping sessions and I can't figure out why.  Thanks!

    My supply tanks before and during...it's a good week and a half of a shortage.

    Yep, my supply dipped about two weeks before I got my first postpartum period.

    Yup when I ovulate, during and right after.  I am screwed for about half the month when it comes to pumping.  It can be very frustrating.

    Me too!

    And I don't know if this is the case for everyone, but I feel like my supply comes back with a vengeance when it does! Like, being engorged and leaking for several days before it regulates again.

    Despite EBF, my periods came back within 2 months of birth. My supply seemed to tank the week AFTER my period.
