Weird periods after lactational amenorrhea

Thanks to bfing into toddlerhood, my periods only returned recently when dd was 25 months old. I've had several cycles since, which are different from previous periods. The weirdest bit is having about a week of spotting off and on before it starts in earnest. This month I've started spotting and then it has just stopped completely yesterday and today.

Give it to me straight, mn. Am I dying or something?? I've never had a period just... Fizzle out like this, and definitely not pregnant (tested yesterday).

I had no periods for over 30 months after ds3 (it was bliss!)
It took 4 months for everything to be regular again, so it's probably just things getting back to normal.
If it's worrying you though it's worth mentioning to a gp.

Thanks. I've just moved house so don't have a go yet, but will ask asap.

Mine were very odd after 2 years absence. And extre heavy. They do an odd spluttering out too. And sometimes I think I've stopped only to start spotting heavily a couple of days later.

I'm in s big toddler be group and there's often lots of 'weird period' posts. Quite a lot take evening primrose, calcium and magnesium and some other bits to help. (Info on kellymom and lll websites)
