katysloan - With that type of irregularity it would be a good idea to see your gynecologist and get checked out. Good luck to you. Pat

Hi katysloan

Thanks for your question!

No, it's not 'normal' to have two periods a month. A woman should have one cycle per month, averaging about 28 days (give or take a few days) beginning with an average of a 4-7 day period.

Are you taking any kind of medication now, that you think may be causing this? Do you have two periods every month or is this something new to happen to you? If it's a once off thing, it may be nothing to worry about but if it's a regular occurrence, you will need to be seen to. How far off are these periods from each other?

I hope to hear back from you soon-

wekk it has occured several times. My periods on average last from three to five days long. They are pretty normal aside from having two in a months time. i will either have two in a month or i will get my period the last week of this month then the start of the next month. and that is still in a 30 day time frame. a few times i have had it for three days then didn't have it for two, then had it again for two dayys.
