Menstruation for 3 days. Then I got it 2 days after?

User Profile
I had a baby April 19, I stopped bleeding 3 weeks after I had him. I got my periods back in May. They've all be regular. Well this month, I got it, but only for 3 days. Then I got it 2 days after I stopped for 2 weeks. And now i'm bleeding again. Is this normal? Or is there like, something wrong?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have stopped breastfeeding, you will not have protection from lactation amenorrhea. Regular periods could indicate that your ovulation has returned and is periodic and regular. If you are sexually active without protection, the symptoms of lighter bleeding, spotting could be suggestive of pregnancy possibility. If you are not pregnant, the irregular bleeding that you describe could indicate causes like changes in body fat percentage, brain or pituitary tumors, PCOS, ovarian suppression, thyroid dysfunction, use of certain medications, hormonal imbalances, etc. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you regulate your periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
