Is it possible that, for some reason, your baby was nursing a little less than normal around the time before you bled? Often, mamas who are ecologically breastfeeding can put off menses for YEARS. However, if you have a frequent nurser who for some reason isn't nursing as much (sore teeth? stuffy nose? mama sick and in bed? mama busier than normal...say moving or taking care of somebody else who was sick?), that could cause a cycle, even if it's non-ovulatory...then when baby starts to nurse "normally" again, it keeps your cycles away again, until baby backs off of nursing again. There is some information about this in "The Art of Natural Family Planning" and in another book that the Couple to Couple League suggests (it's about ecological breastfeeding and your cycles, but I can't remember the name...if you go to ccli.org, though, there are a list of books for sale...and if you call the contact number, the people there are very helpful and friendly, and could, I'm sure easily tell you which book it is that I'm thinking of). Hope that helps.
