Menstruating every two weeks now.
I gave birth 9 mnths ago. Normal vaginal. Everything went very well. I breastfed my baby and went onto the "mini-pill". I'm not breastfeeding anymore, but am still on the mini-pill. For the past 3 months now, I have been menstruating every 2nd week, which lasts about 4 days. I also bleed a little after sex. Is this just temporary or should I see my dr?

The mini-pill can cause this. If you have stopped breastfeeding, you might be better off changing to the combined pill. Bleeding after sex should be investigated. It could indicate a problem with the cervix.
