    Well, the bottle says "This antibiotic may affect the effectiveness of birth control", so.............I'm pretty sure I am pregnant; the antibiotic is ammoxicilian. I will know next week and I'll let everyone know Thanks to all who offered input/support.

    It's boilerplate language.

    About being bothered by nursing? Or about the light period?

    About the aggravated nursing; is this normal? Also, the bleeding is super light..........so I thought the nursing/aggravation was related to this "cycle"; I don't know, I feel like I'm losing my mind My toddler is napping right now so maybe I'll figure it out...................time will tell

    Totally normal for nursing to become aggravating at a certain point. Often it becomes more annoying during certain parts of your cycle.
    Your choices for dealing with nursing aggravation are:
    1. Wean partially or completely.
    2. Limit nursing in ways that makes it bearable for you- for example, limit the toddler's time at the breast, the places where nursing can take place (e.g. yes at home, no in the middle of the grocery store), or the behaviors that are permissible while nursing (e.g. twiddling).
    3. Continue to nurse as before, but find ways to make yourself less annoyed- for example, deep breathing, mantras, distractions.

    Which choice you make is up to you!

    ETA: what do you mean by "bizarre" cycles?

    "Strange" isn't specific enough. Was it a longer cycle than normal, shorter than normal, more or less bleeding than normal, bleeding midcycle, an unusual amount of cervical mucus? Those cues- and others- can help pinpoint what, if anything, is going on.
