Hi--are you saying this bleeding happened three years ago and hasn't happened since? Was the bleeding evaluated back then?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

It wasn't no

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
And for now everything's fine with regular periods and no bleeding other than during those times?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I had another baby last year I remember bleeding one week then stopping then again the next then stopping but it was about 6-8 weeks after having the baby ever since then I have a regular cycle of 28 days with no irregular bleeding

OK. I don't really see any reason for concern here. Bleeding at those times is relatively common and doesn't indicate anything serious. You do need a regular exam and PAP smear as soon as you can arrange that but you really don't need to worry about things like cervical or uterine cancer if those were your concerns
