I don't get my period anymore since getting my IUD so yes it has definitely changed. I have a question though.... I was dying of cramps last night. Worse then I have ever had. Could that be from the IUD? I want to get it out so bad. I just want to feel "normal" again!
Before ever having kids I had horrible cramps. I'd have to call into work, take very strong meds and basically pass out for a few hours. I wouldn't wake up for anything, not phones or knocking on the door - nothing. I'd be rather lethargic for the next 12hrs and then the pain would go away.
I've only had minimal painful cramping since my first daughter.
After DD I got AF back 8 weeks after. I had less cramping than before (so basically none) and the flow seemed lighter most of the time I think. I've only had one cycle back since DS and it was fairly light with no cramping. I don't know if it will be more or less regular since I've only had the one.
Definitely!! My flow is heavier than before, but I have PCOS and had crazy irregular cycles before I had Grace. I do still have long cycles on occasion, but usually they are between 28-31 days now They were ranging from 32-65 before...sometimes I will even go months with just 28 day cycles which NEVER happened in my life before! I also get awful ovulation cramps now!! However, I had debilitating cramps before I had Grace when I got AF and now I rarely get bad ones....and PMS is worse, but i've just recently realized it haha
