Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us for help.

There are a number of reasons you could now be having two periods in one month. But, all are related to hormones. The menstrual cycle is regulated by a precise balance of hormones. Any upset will cause irregularities.

Polyps (projections of tissue that protrude into the uterine cavity) or fibroids that impinge on the uterine cavity may also cause irregular periods. In this case, the uterine lining tissue that overlies these projections is less stable, increasing the chance that it will be shed at an inappropriate time. Also, fibroids and polyps increase the surface area of the uterine lining, often leading to prolonged and heavier bleeding.

Please call your gynecologist today. Blood tests to check hormone levels can give you the answer.
