Hi Evy,

There are a number of things that could cause you to have your period twice in one month. It might be stress induced or it could be a hormonal inbalance or it could even have been a very very early miscarriage. Whatever the reason, if you are worried I would suggest that you go see your doctor or gynae and have a check up. If you have been experiencing bleeding after sex, pain after sex or pain/bleeding when using the toilet then go to your doctor immediately!

I would also advise that you do thorough medical check up for any kind of infection,also you can do HSG to confirm that your fallopian tubes are open since you mentioned that you have been married for over two years and not sign of pregnancy,pls i want to advise you to do whatever you have to quickly

Hi carnal,

Thanks a milliontimes for your advice. I did HSG last year and my fallapian tubes we okey and the two tubes were visual seen and normal. The problem now i dont know whether am ovulating or not. COuld you please, advice me on fertility drugs that induce ovualtion which is not harmful cos i learnt that clomid do have after effect (cancer). Please i need your advice.

ThANK You and may God bless you.

I know this post was in 2009 but I'm going to post some information for those who might still be looking for answers

The most common reason for bleeding twice in one calendar month occurs when a normal period begins on the first or second day of the month, and then another arrives at the very end; because the normal cycle length (from the first day of one to the first day of the next) ranges from 23 to 35 days, this can allow two perfectly normal periods to arrive in the same calendar month. Most of the time, however, when women talk about having two periods in a month, they are not referring to this circumstance. Often they mean they are starting a period every two weeks or so -- certainly less than the 23-day interval that is considered within the normal range.
Anything that can disrupt the delicate hormonal dance that produces ovulation can lead to either skipped periods or periods that come too often. Hormonal imbalance as a cause of frequent periods is often seen as a woman nears menopause. Thyroid dysfunction may also be a factor.
Another reasons for twice-a-month periods is abnormal thickening of the uterine lining. This thickening can be due to hormonal imbalance or to taking estrogen without a progesterone medication as well; estrogen causes the uterine lining to proliferate and become thick and lush, while progesterone thins out the lining; a balance between these two hormones is necessary to ensure regular, moderate periods.
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.
If your periods are coming less than 23 days apart (counted from the beginning of one to the beginning of the next), then you should see your gynecologist. A biopsy may be necessary to rule out an abnormal thickening of the uterine lining. Blood tests may be done to assess hormone levels. Most of the time the reason for frequent bleeding is benign, but occasionally the problem can be more serious; for this reason, and because excess bleeding can lead to anemia, too-frequent periods must be investigated.

I'm 36 years old and I started my period this morning for the second time this month. I have no kids. I've had 2 abortions when I was 33 and 35. I had sex with my boyfriend on May 20 and May 27 twice and May 28. We didn't use protection he always pull out. I went exercising at 12:30 at the gym this morning and ran and walked for an hour and about 15 min. I woke and I had to pee and I was bleeding. Why am I starting my period. I workout every week. I missed 6 days of working out because I've been busy.
