See a Doctor: You really need to see your ob/gyn. It can happen but we worry about anemia and other issues.

It is not normal.: You need an exam & blood tests, possibly a sonogram to find the cause. If you were breastfeeding that may be a contributing factor, & the problem is likely to be hormonal in most cases.
