I started my period when I was 12 and am 21 now! After a few years my period got more normal. I have always fought stress, thats life, but just recently my body desides to have 2 periods a month just about a week apart. I don't know why? I have never bleed this long! So far it's going on 12 days! Could this be normal because of stress and then if so why hasn't it happened before?

User avatar Hi!

Irregular menstrual cycles is a common complaint. A trial of oral contraceptives are usually used to regularize the cycles. There can be a lot of causes to look out for however. Click here! to find out more. And as always, there is no substitute for clinical examination by a doctor.

Hope this helps.
