C-Section/Tubal Ligation 8/14. Normal cycle started 10/13/14. Next cycle 11/15/14. Started cycle again today 11/30. Part-time breast feeding. Dying?

C-Section/Tubal Ligation 8/14. Normal cycle started 10/13/14. Next cycle 11/15/14. Started cycle again today 11/30. Part-time breast feeding. Dying?

Why dying?: Are you feeling really bad from this early period? You could be anemic if you are postpartum and have too frequent periods, which could make you feel very weak. Irregular periods are common following tubal ligation. Being post-partum and breast feeding can also result in irregular periods. If you feel very weak and drained, you should get the hemoglobin level in your blood checked. ...Read more

Can i drink a couple beers 3 weeks after a vaginal delivery, tubal ligation, and me partially breast feeding? If so, how long do I wait to bf again?

Can i drink a couple beers 3 weeks after a vaginal delivery, tubal ligation, and me partially breast feeding? If so, how long do I wait to bf again?

No: I am always worried when someone, after a serious procedure, and particularly in your case when you are breast feeding, are so focussed on wanting (needing?) to drink that they ask this question. Breast feeding is good for you and your baby (bonding, antibodies to the baby, better nutrition etc.), and women who are breast feeding shouldn't drink (maybe a glass of champagne at a wedding), not more. ...Read more

I had a c-section/tubal-ligation and was prescribed Percocet at the hospital and after discharge. I breastfeed, Did taking Percocet harm my baby?

I had a c-section/tubal-ligation and was prescribed Percocet at the hospital and after discharge. I breastfeed, Did taking Percocet harm my baby?

No: Most of the do not breastfeed labels are not based on scientific study--they just don't know, so they say do not take it. If Percocet were toxic to infants via breastfeeding, I believe that we would know about it. So I say no, do not worry. Mothers shooting up heroin may cause their infants to be born addicted, but cause no long-term effects on the baby. ...Read more

I have been exclusively breastfeeding my 6 month old, no bottles no pacifiers, and not yet started on solids. I had a tubal ligation as well. Lately I've been getting PMS symptoms, cramps, and wildly emotional. No breast tenderness though, and no bleeding

Great job!: Good job breastfeeding, it is very good for your child. Time to start solids. What is your question by the way? Not sure if you are asking something about you or the child. The breastfeeding is probably releasing enough oxytocin that you have not started your periods yet. If you think you might be depressed tallk to your doctor, many moms will have sad feeliings early in parenthood ...Read more
