Thanks for writing to DoctorSpring.com with your health concern.

Please get your blood sugars checked .
Are you on any kind of birth control ?
After childbirths, periods do alter, and tend to be irregular.
Are you breastfeeding ?
What is your weight and height ?
Did you have a routine post partum checkup ?
Have all your UTI s been treated with urine culture based antibiotics ?
Please do write back with these details.
Take care.

If you have not had your routine post partum check up, please have one.
That would entail a complete pelvic exam - per vaginum and per
speculum, also a pelvic ultrasound scan.
Get the following hormones measured - FSH, LH, TSH, OGTT, Prolactin.
That would rule out a serious cause for the bleeding pattern.
If this is normal, do not worry, give yourself a couple of months to
stabilize your cycles.
Regarding the UTIs, maintain strict perineal hygiene.
Stay hydrated, atleast 5 - 6 litres of water per day should be drunk.
Clean thoroughly after intercourse and after a bowel movement.
Do not use medicated soaps , gels, cleansers, perfumed soaps or products.
Just clean with lukewarm water and pat dry.
