Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for seeking our advice regarding the change in your menstrual cycle.

How long has this been going on? Contact your gynecologist/obstetrician's office to report this.

The menstrual cycle is regulated by a precise balance of hormones. Having two periods in one month is abnormal and suggests a hormonal imbalance. Also, bleeding twice a month puts you at risk for iron deficiency anemia caused by the blood loss.

Regards,
Maryann
