Hello Priya
Although your periods came back to regular cycles after childbirth, it is not unusual to have irregular periods for the first one year after childbirth, especially if you are breastfeeding. If your bleeding has settled now, just wait for your next period. If it is normal, there is no cause for concern.
To the best of my knowledge, antifungal tablets should not cause any bleeding irregularities.
Hope that answers your query.
