The Symptoms of a Period Without Actually Getting One?

I gave birth to my son 10 months ago. He is still being BF. I have not had a period yet but for the past 4 months, I've had abdominal and lower back cramping for a week at a time, each month and some spotting here or there but no real bleeding. No, I'm not pregnant; I test regularly.

Has anyone else experienced this?

  • Maybe it's your ovulation time. When you ovulate, you can experience period-like cramping. Not all women do this, but many do, including myself.
