Shorter menstrual cycle
Hi Doc

I have had my second baby 10 months ago (both c-sections) and I am still experiencing pelvic pain especially where the vacuum-drain was. A gynae informed me that I have adhesion.

I have also realised that my menstrual cycle is shorter. It used to be 28 days but in the past 3 months it has shortened to between 21 and 25 days.

What could this translate to?

Cycles do change with time and 21-25 days is within normal limits.
Adhesions are difficult to manage other than using painkillers when necessary.
