Hi, I'm a 32 yo single mom of two girls and came across this thread in my curiosity about my missing mensi. I had my youngest in 2016 and had been pumping breast milk so lumps weren't a concern, nor was pain. But a sharp pain had me going straight to the doctor who attempted to dismiss it as a blocked milk duct but I refused to leave his office until he agreed to at least an ultra sound of my breast. A week later the day after my ultra sound the doctor called me and had me go in for mammogram, and then a biopsy immediately after. Two days later the doctor called and told me it was breast cancer. Triple negative, stage 2 so it must have developed sometime after my daughter was born. Never in my life have I ever wanted to wrong about something but I cried for about an hour. That was in March 2017. One pinched nerve, 3 surgeries 8 chemo sessions, several trips to the emergency, one burnt down house, two lost cats, several hotels, several infections and wigs later, my hair and nails are growing back and the only thing I was curious about was when I should expect my menstrual cycle. From what I've read so far it might be a couple years. I don't mind it's absence though I'm glad I had my girls when I did. Despite the difficulties they made this battle worth it. So don't let the doctor's off the hook. No one knows your body better than you do. If you feel something is off, push for results. And no matter how grim the battle field, no obstacle is impassable. Xoxoxo to those still fighting.
