Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the cause second bleeding/periods that you describe without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. Possibilities include breakthrough bleeding, ovulation bleeding, implantation bleeding, bleeding due to hormonal imbalances, intermenstrual bleeding due to polyps/fibroids, etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination and further evaluation to look for the underlying cause for the abnormal bleeding/periods that you describe. Treatment as needed (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the bleeding and regulate your periods. If you have been trying for pregnancy and have not been successful, you should consider getting a complete infertility work-up done for you and your partner to see if there are any underlying causes for the infertility/inability to conceive. Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you get pregnant. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.

Ovulating question
I'm wondering I had my period on may 13th and it lasted a week then on the 25th I got bleeding again heavy the first day but then it eased off after that and lasted 3 days.
When would I be ovulating? The week after my normal period or after the 2nd lot of bleeding???
