Sorry about that, i thought you said that you havent had a period for the last two months after stopping your breastfeeding.I apologise for the misunderstanding but coming to your question, Well in such a case it would depend all on the extent of the bleeding as well as frequency. If you are consistently bleeding and in large amounts (more than 2-3 pads a day) then there is a chance that this is due to a problem other than the restart of the menstrual cycle. Now while it is common for the periods to be heavier than usual or even irregular after stopping breastfeeding in many women, it is still recommended that a pelvic examination be done to rule out other causes.
In 90% of the cases, the heavier and prolonged bleeding is due to the body adjusting itself after breastfeeding has been stopped however in 10% of the cases, the heavier bleeding is due to an underlying cause. This could include simple things like an infection in the female reproductive tract such as PID. This would also cause lower abdominal pain and maybe even a discharge apart from bleeding. Simple abdominal ultrasound alongwith a high vaginal swab as well as urine tests would be diagnostic and then it would be treated with antibiotics. Another cause of this could be polyps inside the uterine cavity or in the cervix. Lastly this can also be due to endometrial hyperplasia which is a condition in which there is thickening of the uterine wall.
All of the above conditions are possible in your case even though chances are the heavier and prolonged bleeding is due to the hormonal adjustment which occurs after stopping breastfeeding which would be considered normal. However as i said, there isa 10% chance of any of the other conditions are the underlying cause and that is why they should be excluded. My suggestion would be to simply get a pelvic examination done which would conclusively rule out the other conditions.
