    Irregular period after childbirth
    An_258283 posted:
    Hi, everyone. I have a question. My wife has been having really irregular period after my kids were born, they are now 16 months old already. I'm kind of worried, because I know how important it is to have a regular period for every woman.
    What's happening is that she kind of has few blood every 25-35 days but it will be gone after a day. Please give me some advice. Thanks.

    It's actually not all that important that a woman have a regular period. Many women don't. Menstrual cycles can run anywhere from 21 to 35 days and still be perfectly normal.

    If your wife is concerned she can always make an appointment with her gynecologist to discuss this matter.
