Irregular periods: you should have your LH and FSH levels checked. also obtain a vaginal ultrasound to evaluate for any 1) chemical /hormonal deficiencies, and 2) structural issues that are causing irregular periods.

No: If you bleeed twice in a month, less than 21 days apart, this is abnormal, and has nothing to do with your next period. There are a number ocauses of such bleeding, including pregnancy, bleeding due to the pill you might be on, tubal prenancy. Best to see your dr. And have the dr. Evaluate.

See below: The first thing to rule in or out is whether you are pregnant or not. If so, see your doctor. If not, the other causes of missing a few periods are excessive exercise, weight loss or gain, stress and other illnesses. At your age, it can also occur for no apparent reason. I recommend that you see your doctor to be examined and discuss this further. They can decide what testing if any, you need.
