You may not have lost 100% of the blood on the previous period, so it is just trying to get rid of all the blood in your womb, this is completely normal but if lasts longer than 2 weeks, you may have to seek medical advice.

It could also be if you have had irregular periods and there is more blood around the lining because you havent had a period for a while.
