    Default Period pains but no period while breastfeeding

    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced period symptoms while breast feeding without getting a period. I am breastfeeding my 15 month old twice a day still, and have not had my period back yet, however for the last 3 months or so I have sworn I was going to get my period, I had cramps, heaviness and it feels just like when I would get my period, but nothing !!
    Anyone else have this?

    I've wondered about this.

    I get cramping and also quite obvious CM once a month yet never a period. I'm BF'ing my DS twice a day and he's 13 months.

    I have no explanation but you're not alone.

    Thanks girls, sounds like it might be a normal thing then, I thought there might have just been me.

    Yes, this happened to me while i was breastfeeding. I always thought AF was just around the corner but then it would never come - it only appeared once i stopped breastfeeding.
