So, I have been on-and-off spotting since my son turned two years old. My period came back 18 months PP and was relatively normal until the month before the spotting started (I had a 46 day cycle then spotted the following month)
Anyway the spotting will go away for a couple of months then return for a couple of months.
I've been to two doctors about this (going back next month for my third appointment) Had an U/S and countless vaginal exams- nothing.
All my doctors say is it is low estrogen (without doing bloodwork) due to breastfeeding and my weight (my BMI is always between 17-18 so low) and tell me to wean.
I am not going to wean, but I think it is possibly a fair assessment of what is going on. I have some weird perimenopausal symptoms. I think my progesterone is whacky too...
Has anyone else spotted during extended breastfeeding? And when I mean spotting most of the time it is a couple of days mid-cycle but sometimes out of that range. It is so light it never reaches my underwear, just the toilet paper when I wipe.
