Af cramps worse or better after kids

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

Af cramps worse or better after kids

Postby meantangent » Sun Feb 21, 2010 8:02 am

Just wondering what your AF cramps are like since having children. How many kids do you have and did the cramping did it get worse each time?

I am not sure if I want one more baby yet but now know I will ask for a hysterectomy if we are done. I can't take these periods being like labor pains. I had bad cramps before kids but it just gets worse. My af has returned five months after my last baby. This is my seconD af. On schedule 28 days. But holy moly the cramps I get after each kid gets way worse. The bleeding TMI is so heavy.

Anyone elses AF come back with a vengence each time? I have 4 kids

I am currently pregnant with #6.. The cramps for worse after 3 of the 5.. after my period returned from my last baby the cramps actually got better. I was told I could have a hysterectomy when I was done having kids, but after a c-section I dont want to go through another surgery.. I am going to look into ablation..

Good luck!

My cramps and flow both got better, except the first period pp, which I've already had and didn't have cramps but it lasted 7-8 days and was HEAVY! :?

eta: i have three kids....the first af was bad with all three.....but i am unable to bf so i don't know if that changes anything hormone wise.
