Menstruation Cycle & Milk Supply

Have you ever wondered why??!! Am I doing something wrong?

when menstrual cycle starts back which can literally occur at any time during your breastfeeding or pumping journey. But if you are one of the lucky mothers who have not gotten your menstrual at all, I’d like to say Lucky You!!! I myself am one of the lucky ones and I enjoyed not having one while breastfeeding both my children for 7 years!

I want you to know that some women experience a drop in milk supply from ovulation until the first two days of your menstrual cycle, and know that this is a sign that you may need to increase your intake with magnesium and calcium to combat your low milk supply. Know that it does not last and your supply will increase. A woman’s blood calcium levels gradually decrease during this period of time, and for some women the drop in blood calcium causes a drop in milk supply.

The recommended #Calciumdosage is between 500 mg – 250 mg.. You can consult your doctor for more information. The recommended #magnesiumdosage is between 750-1500 mg. The higher the dosage, the more effective it may be, but always consult a doctor on what they recommend is best for your situation.

For women who have this problem, calcium/magnesium supplements may be helpful. This practice has also been reported to eliminate most uterine cramping and some premenstrual discomfort such as water retention.

SO get out there and grab your magnesium and calcium bottle.. They work hand and hand for your general health!
