    I recently stopped nursing my 7 month old.. She is my third bf baby. I am experiencing some strange side effects with her. Like the other two I am getting those lovely hormone headaches, but with her I am getting these unexpected nose bleeds? I have got nose bleeds with pregnancy but never from weening.! Is this normal? I was also wondering if it could be from taking the ibprofin for the headaches? If anyone knows or could help it would be much appreciated! Thank you

    dont want to scare you, and i could be totally wrong. but you may want to check with a dr just to make sure everythings okay. just because i think that the two together are normally a sign of high blood pressure. it could be nothing, but id rather be on the safe side. on the other hand ibuprofen normally makes me bleed also when i normally wouldnt. (from anywhere) try tylenol instead if u can..
