I was diagnosed with PMDD before having kids and during my pregnancies and while nursing afterwards I was fine, but now at 23 months PP I am having some issues again. I am still nusring, but obviously the hormones aren't as leveled out since I have been nursing so long. I really don't want to do drugs since I am worried about them passing in my milk and was wondering if any one had any luck with natural treatments. I have an appointment next week and will discuss it, but I wanted some personal experience. Oh and the PMDD was part of the reason I nursed. The doc said nursing would delay it coming back and it did! But sadly it did eventually come back:(

I had severely debilitating cramps and tried LOTS of stuff to curb them, including a vitex herbal tincture. The tincture didn't help *me* but has been known to help lots of women, talk to an ND or herbalist about it. I'm not sure if vitex is safe for nursing mothers or not.
Going vegan did help me though, as well as drinking lots of water. I started by giving up dairy and red meat, which I think were the main culprits. Bad foods are what cause health problems the vast majority of the time.
I have recently learned about an elimination cleanse to detox and figure out what foods are hazardous to your health. You CAN NOT detox while nursing or pregnant, but if you want the info for that cleanse for later send me a message and I'll be happy to send it to you.
