PMS worse after pregnancy? CNA1990 New Jersey 382 posts
24th Feb '13

I'm 6 months pp and my symptoms have been worse and I even have more this time than before I had my daughter. Before Sophia I knew when af was coming due to increased thirst and slight irritability and one cramp that let me know to go to the bathroom because that cramp signaled I just started it. Now I have tender breasts, headaches, cramping, thirst, am snappy, and now spotting about 1-2 days before starting af and a bit more cramps but nothing different in the pain of the cramps just more of them. Sorry if this is hard to follow; I figured I'd apologize in advance since grammar Nazis on here are always making comments on my grammar, punctuation and clarity.

Oh-my-gosh.
Yes, I have had more pms after I had kids.
Before kids when my period would come, I would be happy.

All I've had worst is cramping. Before kids, I NEVER had cramps, not once. After DD1 I had them slightly and with every kid since they've gotten worst.

At first everything was much, much better (no period at all for a year and easy period for another year after that), but after about 2 years everything became worse than ever. 3/5 months I get horribly sick and actually faint on the day my period begins. Time to have another baby.

I used to faint when I got my period as a teenager. That's when I got on the pill and I never fainted again.

I'm 10 months pp + my symptoms are definitely worse! I've always had bad periods, really heavy + painful but they're even worse now. A few days before it starts I feel sick to my stomach, horribly bloated, have bad headaches, am really irritable + moody, have dizzy spells + my b**bs are so sore + painful. I also get bad warning cramps for about a week beforehand. I always feel so relieved + much happier when period finally starts. I'm on the pill since my 6 week pp checkup + it's not helping, it's probably time to look into other forms of bc. :(
