Once a month I get a feeling of flutter in stomach and fullness in vagina, not pregnant, 7 months pp c section, irregular bleeding as breast feeding?

Not sure: Fluttering is usually either intestinal movements or a baby moving. If you are sure you're not preg.. . I'm thinking it's your bowels. The fact that it's once a month is confusing, esp if you're not ovulating regularly. But ovulation can cause a feeling of fullness. Your vagina may feel different while breast feeding due to lack of estrogen. I would give it time, see what happens after weaning. ...Read more

I have been having fluttering under my right breast for about a week now. Is this an early pregnancy sign? I'm about 5 days away from my period.

If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.

I'm having fluttering in the middle of my stomach but upper below my breasts. Is this muscle spasms or my heart? I don't think my hearts near this

I'm having fluttering in the middle of my stomach but upper below my breasts. Is this muscle spasms or my heart? I don't think my hearts near this

Could be either: Here's what you should do - next time you feel the fluttering, immediately check your pulse at your wrist. If it's regular and seems to be a normal rate (generally 60-100 per minute), it's not your heart. If it's irregular or really fast (generally >150) during the fluttering, it is your heart. You may need to try this several times over several days to be sure you've really got it down. ...Read more
