Question: 2 periods.... help me

 CountryGal05 - Sun Sep 18, 2005 6:37 pm

I spotted for 2 days on the very last and first day of the month and then i started my period on the 11th. My period seems to be lasting longer than seven days with heavy then lighter flow. Is something wrong with me?

User avatar Hi CountryGal05,
Stress, hormone imbalances, uterine disorders, etc. may cause alterations in menstrual cycles. If this should continue and you have not had a recent gynecological exam I would suggest that you do so to rule out any abnormalities.
