Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community about why you had your period twice in one month. Thank you for sharing your age, that is important.

In certain instances, two periods in one month can indicate a severe medical condition. Considering your age and this recent change, please contact your primary care physician or gynecologist.

In the meantime, I can offer general information.

Two periods in one month is entirely normal for girls who are going through, or who have recently gone through puberty. It can take many months and even years for teenage girls' cycles to become regular.

Two periods in one month can also be caused by abnormal masses in the uterus, such as fibroids or cysts. These masses can cause discomfort and pain, as well as disrupting a woman's normal menstrual cycle.

Dramatic weight change, extreme exercise, stress, some illnesses and medication can cause two periods in one month.

To learn more, please read, "Reasons for Having a Period Every Two Weeks".

Keep in touch,
