irregular Periods and breastfeeding

Hello, I need all the help I can get...
So, my toddler is about to be 3 and I stopped breastfeeding about 1 month and a half ago. Ever since she was born I started having my period eventho I was breastfeeding her. Suddenly, they became irregular, 2 periods a month, I went to see my doc but all she said was that it was because my daughter was already two, that I had to stop. She put me on the mini-pill but my periods kept coming every 2 weeks. So I stopped taking them. When I was able to completely stop I went back to my doc and she put me in normal bc. My question is should I wait and see if my periods start regulating by itself? Prob my doc was right and I was not having regular periods due to breastfeeding.So far my period has only been once and shorter then usual this month im keeping my fingers crossed. I am kind of having doubts using bc because I believe in the natural way of everything. I do want baby #2 but its hard to figure out ovulation with this situation. Any similar situations please help.
