My daughter will be one year old a week from today. At 9 months we were breastfeeding 4 times per day. At 10 months I cut it back to 3. At 11 months, we went to 2 but I express both times and give her that mixed with some whole milk during the day. She's doing great with it, but I have been experiencing some odd things and not sure if they are related to weaning or something worse. I have had prolonged pain in the area of my ovaries for about 2-3 weeks of each of the last few months. The last 2 months I have been experiencing twinges of pain in different areas of my abdomen, which seem similar to pains in my abdomen the first month or two after delivery. I also get fuller quicker for the last month. It seemed like I couldn't eat enough when I was still at 3 times per day. I just experienced my first period post pardum and it was very heavy and bleeding lasted for 11 days. I have been experiencing sadness, lonliness and unrest for the past two months and I do have a history of depression and anxiety that are directly correlated to my hormones so I have been keeping an eye on that, but I'm wondering if I am just getting anxious again or if other women have experienced these symptoms when weaning. I was reading an article in woman's day and it listed these specific physical symptoms as early signs of ovarian cancer. I am 27 years old with PCOS and did have to use fertility drugs to conceive my daughter. Should I call my doctor or is it just weaning related.
