Period returning?

My DD just turned 13months. She is still nursing a lot (like it is still her main nutrition as she is finicky about food. Nurses 6-10 times a day) which I think has delayed my period coming back? I had a couple very light spotting periods before this, but in the past three weeks I have basically had my period for a week, had a week off, started a new period. Anyone know if this is just my body getting back in the swing or if I should call a doctor? I am on the mini pill. Also, I am new to the area I live in and have no established doctors...

This is a known side effect of the minipill, actually.

Periods can be funny while breastfeeding. Plus your on birthcontrol. I wouldn't worry too much about it...

Thanks. I will look into this a bit more. I had no idea!
