  1. Re: Estrogen Dominance after Extended Nursing?

    To update.

    I felt really uncomfortable again yesterday so I decided to pump again yesterday. When I say pump though... I am not really getting anything. The first time I tried ( 3 days ago) to...

    Re: Involution and discomfort

    Thank you again! If I private message a link to pics...does anyone know if they could tell me if it at least looks like colostrum or something else on my nipple when I pumped? I did not start pumping...

    Re: Involution and discomfort

    We finally stopped nursing around May 19th after 3 years 8 months and 19 days. My daughter wanted to try for milk one more time but said no milk so she stopped even though she was bummed and would...

    Involution and discomfort

    I had a previous post that went off in another direction. Is it normal to have a lot of discomfort during involution if you weaned very gradually. We kept nursing until my daughter said there was no...
  8. Re: Estrogen Dominance after Extended Nursing?

    I did just look up involution and it is talking about milk stasis and how you can get an infection if not relieved. I would have never pumped if I did not feel so uncomfortable. Not quite sure what...
  9. Re: Estrogen Dominance after Extended Nursing?

    I only pumped because the nurse at my gynecologist's office and our local lactation told me I could since I feel very uncomfortable. We really stopped nursing because my daughter said the milk was...
  10. Re: Estrogen Dominance after Extended Nursing?

    So...I am trying to pump and I am getting a white/yellowish substance that sticks to the nipple. Could this be an infection from not expressing? I stopped and wiped myself and I can see more in the...
  11. Re: Estrogen Dominance after Extended Nursing?

    My impression was that an event (weaning, child-birth, menopause) causes estrogen levels to soar. I know that in menopause they are supposed to drop but some suggested menopause too. This shift in...

    Re: Hypothyroidism and nursing

    I am seeing my doctor on March 26th. It is weird because...I asked to get tested for this. After telling him my issues...not once did anyone suggest it. They also do not seem to be in any hurry to...

    Re: Hypothyroidism and nursing

    Thank you reading mom, I did read about that in my research.

    I think I am still in disbelief but as I said...if the pill will help me... I will take it. I won't say I won't complain about it...

    Re: Hypothyroidism and nursing

    Well, I was ignoring the tiredness but the itchiness scared me. On my drug sheet it lists symptoms of a reaction and those with others were on there. I am still extremely itchy and taking Benadryl...

    I started the meds on Sunday and the one...

    Extended nursing and ovulation

    Hello!

    I currently have a 3 1/2 year-old that is still nursing and I am fine with nursing as long as she wants to. Just recently, my husband and I decided that we would stop "not trying" to get...
  23. Re: 12 month old Nursing strike or something else??

    My daughter did the same thing at 15 months. I was heartbroken and just kept pumping. We thought it was an ear infection or something causing it but it was not. I followed advice I received in this...
