I've had 2 periods this month??

I'm in high school and my periods have been fairly irregular since they started. There was even a large period of time without a period. This November, I had a normal period, though, and earlier this month, I had a heavier but normal period. I have visited the doctor and had an ultrasound done this summer when I had no periods, and everything was fine. Now, I'm having a second period in December. I don't know if it's something to be worried about because I've had such erratic periods, but I have been quite stressed lately as a musician always is during Christmastime. Thank you!

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to our community with your concern.

High levels of cortisone associated with stress cause a late or missed period.

Did your physician order any blood test to check your hormone levels?
The menstrual cycle is regulated by a precise balance of hormones. Any upset can cause irregularities.

Generally, during adolescence and the early years of menstruation, the menstrual cycle can be irregular. Over time, the cycles become regular, but some women will have irregular cycles their entire reproductive years.

I don't think you should worry about this. Rather keep in communication with your doctor.
