Hello-
I don't know if this is the correct place to ask this question,but here goes:
I have been exclusively breastfeeding my baby for 7 months now (tried to feed him solids, but he's picky) and for the past 2 weeks I have been having period-like cramps. I have not had a period since before i was pregnant....Saw a nurse and she kinda shrugged and didn't know what to think, but said take advil. Any help on what this really could be? Is this how a period starts after not having one for over a year? Thanks!
