Breastfeeding & Periods

My dd's 7 mo now, breastfeeding still & I can't figure out if these periods are normal. I started my period this morning, I stopped on the 10th after bleeding for 5 days (closest to how my periods were before I got prego). Same thing happened in Sept, started on 11th ended on 16th, started on 24th, ended 28th, started Oct 9 ended 13th then nothing till Dec. I'm taking progesterone bc by mouth. What's going on? Oh yea & my cramps are progressively getting worse, though I had HORRIBLE cramps before baby. Is this normal? I know it takes a while after you have a kid for your system to level out but really?

  • I had bad cramps and irregular periods until I had my daughter. During the almost two years that I breast fed, my periods were lighter with less cramping, and my cycle was 28 days. After my daughter weaned, my cycles gradually went back to “normal”
