Has anyone else experienced bad PMS/PMT symptoms since having their LO's? Too much info :oops: but I had my first period last week and suffered horrendous mood swings! :( Dreading next month!

Its definitely different. I'm back on the pill so was expecting things to be the same but I find my c-section scar tends to ache / hurt more at this time.

Would have to ask DH about mood swings - he usually knows its coming :wink:

Definitely...we talk divorce once a month it's that bad!! Although the month before last I took starflower oil (extra strength - like 1000mg!!!) and was ALOT better. I missed a month and really noticed the difference. This month I am taking it again and feel better. It helps to 'maintain harmony and well being thoughout the month'. Its twice as strong as evening primrose which is also good and some B vitamins too.

I definately notice a difference, Im very snappy and teary before I get it - also due to some hormonal insufficiencies which doesnt help at all. I also get more pains now than I used to.

I take lavender baths and have a dark hot chocolate with full-fat milk (I dont understand the obsession here in England with semi-skimmed, full-fat tastes so much better!), I find that lifts my mood. I prefer the one from hotel chocolat, not cheap but definately very good.

My GP is unfortunately very old fashioned he would just prescribe me anti-depressants and I am not very keen of that.

I will take Mae'r's advice with the starflower oil though I haven;t heard of that before!

As for DH - he tends to work VERY long hours when I have AF *wonders if there might be a connection*

I suffer bad and get a painful scar too. Fortunately my cycle is still erratic with still BF so it's only 6-8 weekly.

My GP told me when I was about 14 that having a baby helps your cycle, slightly tongue in cheek, but Mum wasn't impressed!
