I have been breastfeeding for an extension of time due to my daughter have down syndrome shes much smaller then most and i decided to breastfeed longer and still am but since its been OVER a year im experiencing some awful things perimenopausal issues, acne, irrtated all the time, no periods at all since her birth so almost 18 months with no returned period.
weight gain, just alot of awful things. I only breastfeed now a few times a day is it SAFE to take DIM a natrual supplement for hormone balance and maybe take fertureek to help keep production of breastmilk to stay good?? I am just a mess and cannot handle feeling like this and im only 24 years old :(
is it safe anyone else experience these signs from breastfeeding for longer then most??

Hi there, I'm not sure about taking anything but I can relate to how your feeling, my little one 16 months I just stopped feeding, was very hormonal, tired and irritable! I wondered if feeding was causing it, went to doctors she said maybe a little down and to Monitor it... After stopping feeding I dont feel as irritable but it could be coincidence!

Feeding is so natural and gives us a great bond with our little ones! I hope you manage to find something herbal to help you!
