Two periods one month?

My periods are somewhat heavy but they are regular-30 day cycles- and luckily I never get cramps. I have been sexually active since age 13 and I am 34 and have never gotten pregnant so I assume I can't. My last period started Jan 23. I recently started medications for hypothyroid and my doctor thinks I may have PCOS even though it has been ruled out in the past. Anyways I have been having unprotected sex at least 3 times a week. 2 days ago during sex it seemed my period came but then it stopped. Yesterday I had cramps but no bleeding and today I had some bleeding just a few drops here and there. This has never happened before and I am so confused. I was tested for std's just 3 weeks ago and results came back ok. What could be causing this?

Hello broken_brain,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community.

If an infertility problem has not been determined and cause documented, there is the chance that you could conceive.

Considering you have a 30 day menstrual cycle, you could have been ovulating around February 7. If you did conceive, it would be too early to say the spotting and cramping were signs of implantation. Implantation bleeding occurs about six to 12 days following conception.

Discuss this with your gynecologist, who knows your medical history.

I don't have a gynecologist just a family doctor and I saw her yesterday, after ruling out std's, vaginal tears etc she said not to worry about it, that it's probably nothing!? The bleeding has stopped now so hopefully she was right and it was nothing.
