Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Normal periods can be anywhere from 21 to 35 days apart. Sometimes when they are 21 days apart they can cross between months making it seem like you had 2 periods in one month.
However, if this is not the case and you are bleeding more frequently, you need to see a doctor. Having periods every 2 weeks for example can indicate issues such as ovarian fibroids, cysts, or polyps.
Often doctors immediately prescribe birth control pills for irregular periods. However, I highly recommend you receive a pap smear before receiving any treatment to guarantee you are being treated properly.
