Heavy period
by: Zelda Behr

That is quite normal.

Breastfeeding can turn your period on it head, you can have heavy periods or very light ones, longer than normal or shorter and even skip a few months.

- You can take a combination supplement of 1500 calcium/400 magnesium per day (always taken together, never separately) This will regulate your periods, prevent nipple tenderness, keep milk supply up and also prevent uterine cramping.

- Evening primrose (1 per day) can be taken to relieve nipple tenderness.

I myself am going through this, it's not pleasant, good luck.
