I delivered in October and my postpartum bleeding stopped by 20-25 days.. after that last month I had very light bleeding, which was like spotting, I was not sure if I had got periods again or not. this month I have similar spotting so I guess I have got my periods again. I am exclusively breastfeeding my baby.. is it possible to get periods so soon? I've heard that some ladies can get periods soon also even though they are breastfeeding.. bt I want to know does periods flow reduces so much after delivery? it's just like spotting.. and I don't have any pain also like I used to have before. is it normal or do I need to consult my gyn?

It is normal for periods to resume after post partum bleeding stops. And it is also normal to get them once you stop feeding. In most situations once you go thru a pregnancy and birth your uterus matures and period discomfort reduces.
