Period every other week!

I’m almost 7 month pp and my periods seem to be coming every 8-10 days 🥲 they’re lasting around 6 days but is this normal? I also breastfeed at night so I thought this was meant to reduce them. Also on the mini pill but started this just after I gave birth

I'm so confused

I'll be 37 in a couple months and over the past year my periods which have always been like clockwork, 28-32 day cycles have since postpartum turned into 19-24 day cycles.

Night sweats

Anyone else wake up drenched in sweat at night? I read online that it has to do with hormone levels changing... I wonder how long it is going to take to settle because I can't just change my sheets daily 😅
