Brennan stopped nursing at 10 months (2 months ago), that month I had two periods two weeks apart. My 3 yo was still nursing, so I was producing a small amount of milk, but then I noticed this month, I had completely dried up... nothing, and I again had AF show up two weeks early. I'm almost 46 yo, so I know this could also be perimenopause, but after thinking about it was wondering if it could be more likely due to cessation of b/fing (after almost 3 1/2 years)...thanks for any help.....

Hi Annabelle,

I don't have any personal experience, but I know I've read about post-weaning irregularity on this and on the tcoyf.com (now ovusoft.com) board. I hope it's not the big "M," too (you're still very young)! Hang in there and see if things don't get straightened out.

Good luck! And ~*~*~*~ dust~*~*~*~

Hi annabelle, with my first dd, I weaned her at 10mnths and didn't even have AF return until 2 mnths later, so I would say it's not that unusual for AF to be wacky after weaning. As far as menopause I hear that a woman will usually go into menopause around the same age as her mother did. HTH.
