It probably has something to do with what you're eating. Are you eating a lot of salty foods? If so, try to cut down and eliminate the excess, if you can.

As long as you're not putting anything in your body that can harm the baby, your breastmilk shouldn't have a negative effect.

When you want to stop breastfeeding, you just stop. Breastfeeding works by supply and demand ... If there's no demand (ie, feeding or pumping), the supply decreases over time until it stops.

I'd take a very close look at your diet. If you've changed something, or the amount of something, since last time you breastfed, you could try and change your diet back.

Does the baby seem bothered by your breastmilk?

I don't think you getting your period would affect the taste of your milk.

Of course, i could be wrong ... I've had little training in breastfeeding, unfortuneatly (I'm a nursing student!) ... Have you talked to your doctor? A lactation consultant?
