Normal cycle variati: most women's cycles vary from time to time. you might have had some hormonal fluctuation during this cycle that caused your bleeding to be irregular. this is usually a benign occurrence, however, should it persist for more than 3 cycles you might need to try birth control pills for cycle control.
