The math works: A woman with 28-day cycles (or shorter) will occasionally have 2 periods in one month, such as a period beginning February 1 and another beginning February 29. That might happen once a year, because the woman would have about 13 cycles in one year. Because we have only 12 calendar months per year, one of the months must have 2 menstrual periods in order to total 13 periods per year.
