Painful during sex post hysterectomy

18 and short menstrual cycle

On behalf of Hayley:
My last two menstrual cycles have been very short, 21 and 18 days respectively. My normal cycle is 28 days and I bleed for 5 days. The length and heaviness of my periods has remained the same. I am a bit worried that this isn't normal. Do I need to see my GP about this?
