Hello Rachelle


I thought it was quite usual to have irregular cycles after birth - especially if you have been bf, which you were at first. I dont think you are necessarily perimenopausal. You could look on the ttc over 40 board because they often opost on this topic.


I'd be grateful for ANY cycle. I bf DD for 2 years and towards the end of that period wanted to ttc again, but my period wouldnt come back, even when I tried cutting bf right back to only mornings and evenings. Now 11 weeks after DS I again have no period and fear I will have none until I stop bf DS. It's a bummer, because if we DID decide for another go, I'd have to stop bf DS and I wouldnt want to do that before 2 years (supposing the milk keeps flowing).


By-the-)way, Dr's who start sentences with "At your age..." should be struck off, in my humble opinion.


All the best

oh Rach.. you act as if you are already in the grave!!! Snap out of it.. soon you will feel young again!!!!

I know I dont feel old.. as long as I dont look in the mirror anyway, some days I have wrinkle face and other days I have ugly hair day and then out of the blue, usually after a good nights sleep I look in the mirror and my makeup just works and the hair is shinny and my face doesnt look like my grandma's skin..

now as for mentally, I still feel 16, I dont feel old and run down, unless I move LOL

my brain says Im young so.. there for I must be! besides im not even middle aged yet. I am going to live till I am 95 or 100 so since im only 42.. im not there yet.

Good luck sweety, soon you will feel good again.
