Frequent Bleeding/Periods

Posting on MN as I'm at a loss & maybe someone can point me in the right direction.

Sorry if irrelevant info, don't want to leave anything out.

Periods returned approx 5months ago after baby/bf. First period fine, 30 days til next one.
After second period only had 10days before bleeding again for 5-6 days. 8 day gap then another full period.... It has gone on like this ever since, a bleed like a full period coming 5-10days after last bleed finishing.

It's really getting me down & I'm exhausted which I think might be lack of iron? I'm taking an over the counter supplement.

Went to doc who took swabs but not blood. She could see an abrasion but this is common after childbirth? (Baby is 11 months)
Swabs came back clear for sti check(or dp would have serious questions to answer!!) & no action on 2 other swabs but person calling with results couldn't tell me what these were for.

No other notes on my file. 18days for another appointment.

I know the answer really is go back to gp but if anyone had any thoughts?

Oh, I'm not pregnant. Have checked that too.
