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.

"8/28 plan b. 9/6 period start, 9/9 pms/pregnancy symptoms start and gotten worse without easing. Could this be from the plan b, or what should I do?

"8/28 plan b. 9/6 period start, 9/9 pms/pregnancy symptoms start and gotten worse without easing. Could this be from the plan b, or what should I do?

Typical with Plan B: Plan b essentially disrupts the normal menstrual cycle by blocking or delaying ovulation. That it is how it works and why it is so different than a medical abortion. Irregular bleeding after taking Plan B is not rare. Always check a pregnancy test after using Plan B and see a doctor to start a better form of birth control. ...Read more

I should be expecting my period tomorrow, however I am experiencing other pregnancy symptoms and I am not sure if they are pms. Can a discharge that s?

Can't tell: You do not state what the other symptoms are and why they would be confused with pms. If your period were due tomorrow, at best you would be only 1-2 weeks pregnant so I don't know what symptoms you are referring to this early in a pregnancy. Your reference to a discharge is incomplete and can't be answered at this time. ...Read more
