Is this normal? Breastfeeding/period question

My baby is 16 months and I'm still breastfeeding. I started getting my period again in April but it's been coming about every 15 days. Should I be worried or see if it evens back out or something? Google is not my friend in this matter.

It's normal for them to take quite a while to level out, but if it's steady and just at a weird cycle I'd mention it to your doc.

It's weird right? I don't even know if it has to do with the bf or not.

Everything is normal except the frequency. Maybe it just needs time to adjust I guess.

Call your doctor. I had issues like that , but I become very anemic and can't stop bleeding. I don't think bf has anything to do with your issues.
