This is not normal.: Bleeding twice in one month is not normal and you should see a woman's health provider. Sometimes it can be a sign that you are approaching the menopause, but more often there is a problem with the uterus. After age 35, your risk of overgrowth of the uterine lining rises and this can lead to cancer if not caught early. Usually, this is just a simple growth in you uterus, like a fibroid or polyp. ...Read more

Three weeks: You still have time to take Plan B. It is generally effective if taken within 72 hours of sex. For the pregnancy test, it would be better to wait at least 3 weeks after sex to do the test. If it is negative, repeat the test 4-5 days later. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Why does my period come earlier every month? It lasts about 4 days, the first two days are very heavy with excruciating cramps. I can barely function.

Normal: A normal cycle length is any where from 21days to 35 or 42days from the start of one period to the start of the next depending on your source. Since most months are longer than 28 days,This means your period will come earlier in the month each cycle even if you are on birth control pills and have an "ideal" 28 day cycle.
