I had surgery for a ectopic pregnancy. My cycle came on July 16th, stayed on 7 days. July 29 it came on again should I be concern?

The hormone levels will take awhile to get back to a "normal' cycle after a pregnancy. If yo do not wish to become pregnant please make sure to use appropriate birth control. ...Read more
