Hi hun, sounds exactly like mastitis, I had it when Isaac wsa 5 weeks old. It really sucks, best get to the g.p. and get antibiotics, you will feel better once you start taking them xx

I had it too hun, 3 times when Ruby was just 2-4 weeks old.
Buy a cabbage, put it in the fridge for a bit and then put a leaf inside your bra. It really helps, honestly! Also hot and cold alternate flannels and massaging it while feeding - helps to unblock the ducts.
Antibiotics were the only things that got rid of it for me i am afraid, all three times but I persevered for the sake of Ruby and fed her through the pain,. At times i was crying as she fed but it was sooo worth it in the end as she is still breastfed at 6 months old now.
Keep going hun, but def gets those tablets.

Feed/express through it but get the antibiotics!! I got it when I had finished feeding Lillith but ended up needing 4 courses of antibiotics!! and was due to have surgical intervention if it didn't go because i wasn't feeding her... You'll feel so much better after a few days of tablets!

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
