Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

To be sure take a pregnancy test and see. If this is negative, a change in periods could be due to breastfeeding, infection or hormonal changes. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your gynecologist regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
