(4) brandy says:

wow, that is very rude. sometimes people cant just run to the doctor. ive had the same problems and i’ve been to the doctor. everything is normal, pap, no polyps, nothing. i am going to say mine is due to stress mainly, we just moved cross country away from everyone we know. hopefully it will all work itself out.

(7) Niki says:

I had a period at the start of the month that was very heavy and now I have a very odd period about a week or two apart that is very unusal… would it be stress or is this something I should see a doctor about?

(9) Maxine says:

First let me start by addressing Bertha. Clearly this site is not for you and your communication skills is severely lacking.
Secondly, my cycle came today spotting around 6am. I waited to see if it would get full blown and as it did by 2pm I contacted my doctor. Still no answer as we have been playing phone tag but I will say I am not under stressed (quite happy and content, not on BCP and not pregnant as my exam with her was Feb 26th and I have not been intimate at ALL. Most posts on many sites seem to be stress, BCP, miscarriage etc.
Hopefully she and I can have a dialog and I can share perhaps another reason beyond what I have been seeing posted.

April 27, 2009 at 11:23 pm
(10) Maxine says:

sorry. was trying to be so thorough and forgot to mention that my cycle finished 12 days ago. Started on April 10th and well today is April 27th

April 30, 2009 at 12:42 am
(11) Mia says:

Maxine, yes please keep me posted. I basically have the exact same thing. Even started about the same time as you. The only difference, I had protected sex on the 16th.

(12) Nicole says:

My cycles were never normal and I was put on metformin 10 yrs ago and have had normal cycles since in started the med. However I started my perion on 6/14 and then again yesterday 6/28.

(19) Kelsey says:

I am 13 years old. I started my period when i was 11 years old. i was havving normal periods up intill 3 months ago. i started to have early periods but never 2 periods in 1 month. now this month i have started my second period. i have not had sex at all in my life. now i have a small lump on my vigina. i am worried about the lump more than the period problem. what should i do should i tell my mom and get to a doctor or should i wait and see what happens.

August 4, 2009 at 1:29 am
(20) rita says:

August 4, 2009 at 1:32 am

(22) jennifer says:

i started my period on the 25th of last month and now just today on aug 9th i had another one really weird i don’t have any idea why i would be doing this my periods have always been regular i have 2 kids but after that they go right back to normal about a week ago sience my period i had today i did take a plan b pill the morning after pill idk if that had anything to do with it or not but surely not a week later and i have taken them before and i never did this well anyone know anything please let me know thank you

August 28, 2009 at 3:47 am
(23) Liz says:

I wasn’t expecting to see so many similar stories to mine when I decided to look this up!! I have been having unpredictable periods for the past few months. I had a period from 7/23 til 7/30. Then one morning on 8/11 I woke up and it felt like I had a bladder infection and I was spotting. I went to the doctor, they said I did have one, gave me medicine and it was fine.. But the bleeding wasn’t from an infection, I actually had another long and very heavy period from 8/11 til 8/17. It was weird! I have never taken birth control, only use condoms. The only thing I can think of is I recently lost 15 lbs in about 3 months, which isn’t really rapid weight loss.. but since I’ve lost weight I don’t get a single cramp!! I used to get them horribly, like I felt like crying they were so bad. I don’t like having 2 periods a month though! I’m going to track it a little longer and if it keeps up I’ll go to the doctor. Maybe the government is putting something in the water to male us all infertile! Just kidding. But it is weird that so many of us have this condition.

(24) hana says:

hello all I’m sixteen and currently using the controceptive pill, I am currently intimate and I stared my usual period after taking all the CP over the 21 days and I was a day late which was unusual for me, how ever continued with my usal 4/5 day period and then a week later found my self spotting brown and light pink at first I though this may have been from conceiving but, then the bleeding got heavier for a few days then lightened down I was just spotting after 5 days the bleeding stopped Until I had sex which a few hours later stared the bleeding it was now been 7 days since it all stared, I have not managed to get a doctor or clinic appointment as every where is full or this week, does any one have a clue what I might be suffering from please reply as quick as possible, thank you.

(25) Ivette says:

Hey ladies, i just went to the doctor today because i had my period for about two weeks!
and she said it was not normal at all and i am startining to bleed right now but not alot and i have no pain. what could this bee?
she kicked me right out and said to come back next week!

September 5, 2009 at 4:03 am
(26) Christine says:

I’m confused and don’t know what’s going on… I had my regular period from the 17th to the 22nd of August… And started another period on September 3rd! Really heavy…ugh. I did take a birth control pill once and only once on the 29th of August but haven’t taken it since then because I’m not sure if I want to go on the pill and I don’t have sex often. If it is the singular pill that’s causing this, why did it take almost a week to effect my body this way? Idk… Any comments?

September 13, 2009 at 8:26 am
(27) alyssa says:

the same thing has happened to me i had my period sep. 1 it lasted about 7 days very heavy and bad cramps the usual so i thought i woul get on the pill, i took it and had very bad headaches the three days i took it so i stopped taking it , but then sep.11 i started bleeding again too heavy to be spotting so idk what it is all i want is an answer

September 14, 2009 at 12:26 pm
(28) lyndsey porter says:

since i had my first child 3 years ago i av started to have 2 heavy periods a month the doctor put me on the pill and said that would sort it out which it didnt anybody know what the problem could be .

September 15, 2009 at 2:40 pm
(29) allison says:

can’t wait to hear a response from a doctor or something, but here’s my prob – i think you’ll all relate. i had my period 8/25, yesterday i started to bleed (semi light with cramps)…today i am bleeding HEAVY with clots and bad cramps. went to a clinic and they are testing my thyroid (which is usually low functioning, i take meds), but i don’t think that’s it. i had my tubes tied in 2007 and my periods have gotten progressively worse. this is the first time i’ve had a period twice in a month though. advice??

September 17, 2009 at 12:46 am
(30) Cassie says:

Ok well I am not the only one then. I had my period and it ended less than two weeks ago and it is back again. I am not under too much stress but the last time I had sex was about a month ago but I had my period since then…so that doesn’t mean I am pregnant right?

September 18, 2009 at 2:34 pm
(31) Amanda says:

Hey Cassie, it’s possible to have the first couple periods while you’re pregnant, so you might want to take a home test just in case you are. But I’ve also had this problem with my period. It was always regular until I had my 2nd baby. Then I had the depo shot, my period came twice one month, skipped the next month, then twice the next month. Then I had a month of birth control pills and haven’t taken anything since. But, ever since that shot, I’ve been having 2 periods a month with about a week in between. I go to the doctor today for a different type of pill that worked in the past, but I’m going to talk to them about this problem. This one I’m on now started a couple days ago and is the heaviest I’ve ever had. I know I’m not pregnant, I’m under some stress with 2 babies and a husband, but I know that’s not the cause. I’m only 21. I’d hate for something to go wrong already.

September 19, 2009 at 4:02 pm
(32) Cassie says:

Thanks Amanda, I am on birth control and I was always regular until now. But there was a time when I didn’t take it for a while then that was when I had sex. I suppose that I really should take a home test and that is true that for the first couple months being pregnant you can be on your period. I guess I will just have to wait it out. I hope your doctor visit went well.

(33) Same here says:

Hi all! Wow! Aren’t we a lucky bunch…
I had regular periods until after I had kids (miscarriage, one boy, twin girls). After that my periods were all over the place. Youngest kids (now 7) and things are odd again. Just started my second period in two weeks. Ug. I experienced a weird pain in my abdomen (?) last year, just in and down from my hipbone, near the edge of my C-section scar. I could feel a pea-size lump and there was pain there a lot, not just when I touched it but frequently and the pain would wake me at night. I had an op to have it removed and it turned out I have endometriosis (which is when the lining of the womb somehow makes it way out of the womb to other parts of your body – in my case prob by a bit of the lining getting there when I had my c-sections). :-/ I am going back to the doc this week to find out what I can do. I’ve heard homeopaths can work wonders.
Take care y’all.

September 21, 2009 at 8:34 am
(34) Amanda says:

Well, I went to the doctor and she told me it’s probably just my uterus thinning out. She also thinks my body’s trying to get back to normal since I threw it off with different methods of birth control. But since it’s been about 2-3 months now, shouldn’t it already be worked out? She gave me a prescription for birth control pills (the only one I know will probably fix this) and said I could start taking them that day. So here we are 3 days later and I’m just hoping this works!

(35) UNIQUE says:

HEY I HAD A PROBLEM LIKE THIS.. I GOT MY PERIOD ON THE 2ND OF SEPT AND IT ENDED AROUND THE 5TH OR 6TH THEN ON THE 12TH I STARTED SPOTTING TIL THE 14TH.. I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO GET PREGNANT FOR 6 MONTHS.. IVE BEEN TOLD IT COULD BEEN A MISCARRIGE BUT I REALLY HOPE THATS NOT THE ISSUE.. ANY SUGGESTIONS??

September 23, 2009 at 10:03 am
(36) Amanda says:

Unique, have you been cramping a lot when you’re spotting? If so, you should probably go see a doctor because it could be a miscarrige. But if all you’re doing is spotting but not cramping it probably wasn’t a miscarrige. Actually, you could be pregnant. Spotting can happen in the early stages of a pregnancy. I don’t want to get your hopes up, but that is a possibility. Go get a test to find out. And if it turns out you’re not, think about getting a fertility test so you know if you can or when you can conceive. Let me know how it goes.

(38) a.ramos says:

I’m 17, and I got my period Spetember 11 and got it again today-Septermber 24. My older sister said I am ovulating more and it means I am prone to pregnancy quicker. I don’t know if thats true, but this is the 2nd time it has happened and well I am just curious about all the other reasons this could be happening.

(43) kati says:

I’ve been having 2 periods a month for the past 6yrs.. thought it was because I might possibly be diabetic ( i don’t have health insurance) I’ve learned to live with it because the second one would come exactly a week after I ended my regular period, and wasn’t to bad. .. But now the this second period is lasting longer and it’s heavier.. talk about severe depression.. I’ve read on here could be thyroid problem, and many others .. I’m only 25. Any thoughts?

October 15, 2009 at 9:10 pm
(44) Gwen says:

Hi i am 21 years old and I am having the same problem. For the past five months i have had two periods a month. I start at the very beginning of each month around the 2nd or 3rd and go from 11 to 13 days then less than 14 days later i start again and go from 11 to 13 days. I don’t have any insurance so i can’t go to the doctor cause i can’t afford it. I have always been a heavy bleeder and went for about 8 days a month but then this started. when i did have insurance i had pap smears every year and they have always came back normal. i have always had a stressful life and it’s not any more stressful now. Does anyone have any suggestions. I have a family history of ovarian cancer. could it be that.

October 16, 2009 at 6:41 pm
(45) monica says:

i wonder where ivette is- i thought she was going back to the dr. after a week! where are you? i wanted to hear the resuts… i’m worried about it too- i have too many periods, too frequently. it’s only been starting to happen like that since last month (i had one for 14 days, then about 15 days in betwee, now it started again.)

(46) KERRY says:

in august i was stressed out my sister has lupus and she had a really bad time , so my period skipped in July (which happens when I am stressed) then in August, September 2 periods per month , in september my period ended early october and now it started today. i think it might be stress, i work out alot. since i work out I don’t feel pain but I am going to watch it for 1 more month then i will go to a doctor

(47) Krystal says:

I’ve been having a lot of the same problems as a lot of all you women here, i’m 22 and had my first child in july 2008. Since then, i’ve been having my periods normally until this month…i came on my period oct.1st to oct.8th and it was normal, then on the 20th i came on my period, very heavy, a lot of cramps, and i’m still bleeding on the 6th day still pretty heavy. I’m waiting to take a home pregnancy test, but i don’t feel pregnant, or i didn’t feel pregnant at all, i was just wondering if anyone can shed some light on this and what it might be?

November 7, 2009 at 12:25 pm
(48) Amy O'Brien says:

Yep, same problem again.

I have been under a huge amount of stress and just finished my period a week ago, then have been throwing up every morning since and now have started another heavy period yesterday.

Hey, Im having a similar problem. I had my daughter 14 months ago, and we are wanting a 2nd one, so we have been trying for a few months now. I got a depo shot in August. I only had one shot and stopped because I had really bad sidefects. So I should have another shot in november. We decided that we wanted another child so I never got back on any birth control. This month would make 2 months that I have been off the DEPO. for these past two months, I have been experiencing two periods a month, I started this month on Jan. 1st, then ended around the 5th or 6th. Now I started bleeding again pretty mild around the 11th. Its bright red, and sometimes brown. I am still bleeding. Can anyone help me? I am really confused! the same thing happend last month! Ive takin HPT and all were neg. but I havent taken one in about a week. But Ive been bleeding to long to be pregnant. Please let me know if you can help me!

Ladies, i def feel your pain, my doctor said I have PCOS (poly-cystic ovary syndrome) & endometriosis. sometimes I have heavy bleeding and sometimes it lite, sometimes it last a week sometimes a couple of days. But this is the first time i had two in one month. I had one in Dec. but not Jan. Then this month I had one beginning of February and now I am on again only 12 days apart.

This month i had my normaly period till the 8/2/10 and then exactuly a week later on the 15/2/10 i came on again, really heavy and clotting. Its very unusual for me as i have always been regular and on time. I Do not use the pill or anything like that, me and my boyfriend use condoms but for the past 5 months of our relationship we have had unprotected sex quite a few times. Me and my mum dont get on so i carnt turn to her but i dont know why this is happening. Can any give me any advice. x

Reading all of this brings me comfort in knowing that I am not alone. The only time that I ever had a normal period was when I was 17 and on birth control. I now am 27 and have 3 kids. My youngest being 17mo. My periods were some what normal after I stopped nursing at 9 mo. Now they are all messed up. Having 2 periods a month and they last for about 8-10 days. I get about a week and a half in between and then it starts again. They are very heavy and I get terrible cramps and headaches. I have an appt with my dr on Wednesday the 10th. So we will see how it goes! Thank you everyone for sharing. It helped me feel a little better.

I do find comfort in reading all of the simular stories here, it makes me feel less alone through it all.

I’m 32 and I’ve been having the 2 a month period problem for almost 3 years now. Been to a few different doctors and had all the tests done that tell them I am “healthy”. Still I feel like there has to be an answer or solution because it’s just hard to deal with.

The only answers I’ve gotten from doctors is that when a woman bleeds about 10 days after her regular period it means she is ovulating and sometims women can spot bleed during that time. For me, it seems that I can start spot bleeding but if I endure any type of physical activity such as running or even cleaning the house then it will turn into heavy bleeding. Anyone else have this problem?

(66) Mary says:

The only thing I don’t see commented is if your periods are making ya’ll sleepy. I have that issue right now. I also get very emotional right before it starts. This month is the first time that I have gotten a peroid 15 days after my first period of the month. I used to have 2 periods a month for 3 months then I would go to 1 period a month for 3 months. I’m going to make dr. appointment as soon as I’m done and see what could be the problem. Me and my bf are actually trying to get pregnant but so far no luck

(69) Tiff says:

Hello all,
I am 25 healthy working woman in a monogomous relationship, on the bcp pill called Erin and have a similar story to every girl on this page. I suffer from irregular full blown periods which have been happening 2ce a month for the past year. Even
though I’m on bcp’s it hasn’t helped. I’ve just learned to accept it since every doctor i go to seems to have no answers. I think it’s caused by stress because I remember when I took a vacation over the December break I only got it once. Then when I started working again it went back to twice a month. I would say let’s not stress about it and make it worse let’s try and relax and let our bodies do what it’s doing. Maybe our periods are fighting off bacteria or something. Eat healthy mantain a balanced diet excersize and read. Hope we all get better soon.

Hey guys, ok heres my deal. Im 22 and at the end of May I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. About 2 1/2, weeks later, in June, I got my period for about 6 or 7 days. Then exactley a week later I had another 6 day period. I got my period again at the end of June beging of July and it ended around the 3rd. I didnt really have bad cramps during this period just minor pain here and there. From the 4th up till today I’ve been having cramps with back pain. Not sever but enough to slow me down some. On the 9th I had sex again and the next morning I was litely spoting. On the 11th and 12th it was like i was having another second period. But on the 13th and today its been very very lite discoloration. I dont think I’m pregnant bc I took a pregnancy test, but that”s not 100%. My mom said it may be endometriosis. I have a doctors appt on the 27th but im still worried, this has never happened to me before. If anyone has any ideas on what it may be please help

Why does being a female have to be so hard? My period came on 6/28/10 and lasted for about 5 days…very normal. Then it came on again 7/14/10 and its a little lighter. I’m currently on day 3. After reading all the comments I feel a little better about it however I’m still going to make a dr.s appt. I’m 32 married with 2 kids and I’ve always been pretty consistent with my cycles. I may be under a little stress, but no more than normal.

(91) michelle says:

I’ve had the same thing as many of you on here. I’m 49 and my doctor said I was going through the change (irregular periods). I am no doctor, but years of hypochondria has made me do some research.

It’s not unusual for anyone to have an irregular period. Most women do from time to time. Many things affect them – stress, eating habits and just hormone fluctuations. This is true for younger as well as older women as well.

I’ve read most of these posts and I can tell you that after many, many years of having my periods (not all of them regular) I’m still alive.

As for the person who said “go to the doctor” they are obviously insensitive. Not everyone can visit a doctor. However, if you are truly concerned, you can visit a county hospital where they will test you. But I think I can assure the people here that most of these irregular periods are just part of being a woman.

Hey, they don’t call it “the curse” for nothing.

(102) Sue Tan says:

Hi. Thanks for all the sharing. At least it makes me feel less lonely. I experienced 2 period in the same month and about 12 days apart. I usually have some spotting in mid cycle but this time, it turns into a full menstrual flow. I was shocked. I read in another site that it could be due to excess estrogen and fibroid. It seems to fit me because I have at least 2 fibroid of about 6cm. I am current using natural progesterone to counter the estrogen. Estrogen thickens the uterus and progesterone will thin it out. I am planning to use more of it once the flow ends and monitor progress. If it happens again, I will certainly get a docter appointment. I hope those who get a diagnosis will share in this site again.

And, all of a sudden this month, I started around 12/5 or so, and ended on like 12/7 or 12/8. And, for some odd reason, it started back up around 12/14 and just now ended today, this time I had real back lower right abdominal pains, and bad cramps. I really don’t know what’s going on.

(116) Felice says:

Hey ladies. I have a few answers for you. I had the same problem twice and am having it again after going off Bc pills I took for years. I had 10 day periods that would start and stop again. They were heavy.
Once I had an infection and didn’t know it. After taking the antibiotics. The bleeding stopped. Another time I was told I had Fibroids and given meds to shrink them and new bc pills. Fibroids occur mostly when you are over 35. Younger women can have cysts on their ovaries that cause bleeding. My doctor said that taking new pills or not taking them correctly can cause irregularity until your body adjust. Finally, the doctor said that by all means if you are having unprotected sex, you could be pregnant even if he “pulls out”(not fullproof). If you are still in your teens then it’s normal to have irregular periods as your hormones have not “normalized” yet

I am sort of nervous… I am on a very painful period right now and just had one 2 1/2 weeks ago. Cramps every single day and relly irritated and tired. Extreme PMS basically.

Right after my last period I started having really sharp pain in my lower abdomin. I dont have insurance and really didnt want to go see a doctor, but it got so painful I decided to go to urgent care.

They ran some tests and everything came up neg for an infection but they put me on 2 kinds of antibiotics… just to be sure.

I feel aweful and am wondering if the pain in my pelvic area is related to my second period in one month.

I am signing up for insurance through my work but it wont be effective until 30 days from now and I cant afford to see the doc right now.

What is going on with me?

I’m 16 I got my period march 23 2011 and
stopped on the 28th then on April 4 got it again,
We are now the 9th And I’m still on it? It started off
Light but darker then usual.. It’s not as heavy as
“normal period” for me but pretty close . My periods
Are always regular i can usually predict when my next
Period is coming, this has never happened to me before
I am infact sexually active with my boyfriend! We rarely
Use a condom but he never ejaculates inside me?
When I got off my period the 28th I started taking
Birth control again after I stopped using it for several
Months.. I missed 2 pills and then started taking them
As if I didn’t even miss could that be the cause of
This I’m soo scared and I hate doctors this is
Like a last resort , can someone please right back!!

im 20 years old and for the last 2 and a half years ive been getting a period every two weeks , lasting 5-6 days. Ive gone to the docs and he an ex gyno , he baiscally told me to go on birth control to regulate my period…which it did but i dont want to depend on “drugs” to have a regualr period…it stresses me out so much because im young and i feel like someone should be helping me get answersbefore i get told something is wrong and i should have done something about it SOONER. I live in canada i have health insurance…but i get sent home all the time when i mention this to any docter…they basically say OOHHH its ur hormones…blaahhh blaahh blaah….OK how do i fix it? My doc actually told me he would help me IF only i want to get pregnant because if not i should just take birth control and shut up kinda thing…i HATE birth control A. because it has me feeling PREGNANT…gives me all the symtoms which is soo annoying if you ask me…B. im a healthy 20 years old, and i have to take drugs to have a normal cycle? which ive had before this whole period situations….i really think women deserve to get answers when it comes to their bodies..no matter how silly it may be…this whole thing is really effecting my life style and sex life not to mention. My boyfriend and i would like to have children one day and i would be sad to find out later that there are going to be complications due to not doing something sooner.

well ive been on birth control for almost two years ,went of last year may and been trying to concieve since then ,my periods have been pretty narmal until this month i strted on april 6 and now again on april 28
i have never experienced this before please some body tell me what cub be wrong .it is not painful at all but a bit heavy

May 17, 2011 at 10:27 am
(131) juju says:

I have to agree with Bertha, maybe not the way she said it, but it is the truth. Asking questions on the internet to other people who have no clue what they are talking about is a really “dumbass” move. Maybe you should go see a doctor, midwife, or nurse practitioner and make sure there is nothing serious going on. There are blood tests and procedures that can be done to protect your reproductive health. Stop wasting your time with sites like this and if you don’t act like a dumbass people won’t call you a dumbass.

And to all of those girls that are posting that are under 18 years old, please please please get your information from a healthcare professional or your parents, sites like this will mislead you and you will end up pregnant with an STD if you don’t take proper care of yourself!

(133) Stephanie says:

I’m a little relieved that I’m not the only one with these problems.
For the past 6 months I have been having very heavy periods and a “stabbing” pain in my pelvic area. Once my period is over the pain goes away. I do not take birth control and I never have unprotected sex. The first day of my last period was on the 23rd of May and ended on the 30th. I started spotting on June 5th and it has now turned into what seems to be another period. I have had a period for 12 years and I have always been very regular. I have two children … the youngest being 8 months old. I had to have c-sections with both. My husband keeps telling me not to worry but that seems to be the only thing I can do. I can’t help but feel like there is something wrong. My mother had ovarian cysts and I’m wondering if that can be something genetic? Either way whatever it is, it is not good! It’s never normal to have periods that close together!

June 8, 2011 at 8:34 am
(134) Stephanie says:

BTW: I have had my urine tested for an infection and it was negative, so I have a doctor’s appt. on the 15th. Hopefully she will be able to give me an answer as to what might be causing this.
I will be sure to keep everyone posted!

(135) Dawn says:

I am 36 and have a very normal and regular cycle. It starts every month on the 7th and lasts 3 days. This month mine started right on time. The abnormal things were it was 5 days long and bled sooooooooo bad way more than normal. I cramped sooo bad that I was in tears lots of the time. So I went to the bathroom yesterday which was the 15 th and saw medium to dark brown blood ( and no it isn’t stool ) It looked more like what my regular periods look like right at the end of my regular period. My back is also killing me. I called the doctor and she can’t get me in til the 27. I am not trying to worry but that is all I can think about. What can I do to ease my mind of this please help me anyone?????????????????????

(136) Brandi M. says:

Earlier this month I had my period on the 4th and it last 7 days then on the the 19th it started again and is still as heavy as it was during the first period. I have never had this happen to me. In addition to this I have had bleedin every time me and my husband has sex. I am concerned that it it could be polyps or scar tissue since I had surgery for mild dysplasia back in November but I will be seeing my doctor on the 27th cuz this is all really freaking me out

(137) Bobbi says:

this is really scary. i’m 32 and this is the first time this has ever happened to me. it’s only been two weeks and i’m bleeding again. i even felt the symptoms coming on…breasts felt swollen, tired, etc. but i blew it off bc i just had my period. i’m really nervous. i don’t have insurance and will have to pay to go to gyno. my friends say it’s prob just stress bc i’ve been under a lot of pressure lately, but i’m worried. when i was on the shot and also when i had an IUD i bled non-stop, but i’m not on any birth control. i pray it’s not a mis-carriage or something worse. i’m already borderline anemic. gonna try taking vitamins. hope it works.

(138) MELEANN says:

I have read every Question/Comment hoping to come across any helpful information personal or professional. There has been a few helpful answers but not enough. It seems that we are all pretty much asking the same basic question “Is it abnormal/normal to have two periods in one month?” and or ” To have two periods before the normal 21/28 day span in between each period.” Whether we do/do not have sex (protected/unprotected), do/do not take contraceptives, are/ are not stressed etc….you get the idea. I am 44 yrs old and my periods has always been normal until Sept 2010 in which i experienced my 1st (2) full periods which were 4 days apart and my 2nd one on June 24-30-July 13-?? and i can already tell it will be a full 7 days. I personally feel for me that it is not normal and i was worried and that is how i ended up on this forum. It is somewhat comforting to know that ur not the only one although it would be alot more helpful if we had a nurse or Dr. who could give us some deeper insight on this feminine issue. Like so many of you, I to am uninsured!!! And for those of you who are insensitive to our plight “????-???”…I have done some research and will continue to do more. Will be back to post….In the mean time let’s be generous, think good thoughts, exercise, eat right, smile, have faith and trust in GOD. May He Bless Us All…..

(140) jenn says:

i am 24 yrs old with a five year old daughter. My periods are never on the same time each month, it always differs by a few daysto a week or two. The length is usually 5 -6 days. my period this month was on the 3rd to the 7th and now it is the 16th and it seems to be back. last night i went to the rest room and when i wiped it was pink as well as my urine. This morning my urine was regular but when i wiped it was still pink. Then a bit later it was back to pink urine and when i wiped it was red. Now the urine alternates from pink to regular but wiping is red like my period. How is that possible after having my period ten days ago??? I am going to call my doctor but i was hoping to maybe get a quicker answer…..

August 16, 2011 at 11:35 am
(141) jenn says:

forgot a bit if info—i am not leaking anything into my under garments and not needing a pad like i would on my period, which puzzled me. with there being a period amount of red when you wipe, i would figure a pad would be needed, but it isnt …

(144) Rose says:

I have the same issues. Back in 2009 after my son was born I got an IUD. I would bleed like a stuffed pig on christmas twice a month. After about a year the IUD adjusted to my body and it got better. The past 2 months I have had 2 peroids in the same month. My dr says its stress related or its due for my IUD to be checked. The more you ladies stress the worse its going to be. I use google for everything. You can fine low-cost to almost nothing clinics in your area to were you can have yourself looked at.

So I’ve had a completely normal cycle for years now and had never had a irregular period except when I was around 16 yrs old. I always start near or on the 12th of every month, just as I did this month but now its the 29th and I started again like wtf?? I mean I don’t know what to think, I would like if I found out I’m pregnant but I don’t know for sure.. I don’t have insurance so I feel stuck. Me and my man have been trying but it always amounts to nothing.. any feedback would be helpful. Thanks.

(146) Ashley says:

So for the last 3 months have been having my period 2 times a month. And it freaks me out because I usually would go two or 3 months without even having one. So now with having two it starts in the very beginning of the month then last like 3 days and very light. Then 2 weeks later again. Can anyone relate or
Am I just messed up..?

(151) Merlin says:

Hi,
I had my period this month on the 13th (there about) and finished on the 19th. I had sex on the 22nd… it was a bit more painful than usual. It was protected. I usually never know when my partner cums into me but when we were done, he asked if i was still bleeding or if he came into me. I wasn’t sure (maybe the condom broke) so I used my usual contraceptive all the same. On the 28th, I started bleeding again, first lightly, then it started coming up fuller. Today the 31st, it’s lighter. No cramps… I usually have cramps when I’m on my period. I’m very much terrified.
