Mary Jane Minkin, MD responded:
Dear Laura,
This is a tough call; as you technically are within a year of your last menstrual period. Most likely this indeed is just a period, and not related to something abnormal in the lining of your uterus. But just to be on safe side, I would just check in with your gynecologist, who may want to do another ultrasound, just to check out the lining of your uterus. It's a safe test, and will trustfully just be reassuring to you,
Good luck,
Mary Jane
