I started my period on the 5th of this.month & ended on the 12th & just started again today on the 26th. Is it normal to have 2 periods in one month?

No

This could be breakthrough bleeding which can occur at the time of ovulation. Is the flow very light? If so it is OK and can be observed. If it's recurrent please consult your GYN

Could i be pregnant? my last period was on the 30th of december. about a week before my period this month, i got some brown discharge-a little red- very light that lasted about 3 days. my periods are usually very heavy, bad cramping, and sore breasts whic

Most

Most pregnancy tests are 97% accurate 5-6 weeks after your last normal period - so there's a 97% chance you are not pregnant. There is always a possibility that you are in the 3% where the test gives you a false negative. You can either take another home pregnancy test (2 negatives this far along is pretty much 99+% accurate) or you can call your doctor for a test in the office.

No pms symptoms but I did get my period? I am on my period now so I obviously have not skipped a period . Yet I had no pms this month. Why is this?

Be glad

Maybe you're eating better -- more omega-3's, fruits, and veggies. Maybe you've increased your exercise. Maybe you've reduced caffeine, refined sugar, and sodium intake. Maybe you're taking a good multivitamin, or a B complex with extra B6; also reducing stress. Are you taking anti-inflammatory medicines? Or, you've had a spontaneous remission. Nice Christmas gift, it seems.

Im a nursing mom on the mini pill and I get my period 2 times a month. Is this normal? If so could you please explain why this is normal?

yes normal

The minipill is a very low dose of progesterone. it must be taken at the exact time daily to be most effective because of this low dose. If there is too much spacing your hormone level could go down which will make your uterine lining unstable & shed. This is a side effect of hormonal contraception especially when too low. Remember exclusive breastfeeding without bleeding is also a form of BC

This month my period started on the 12th and ended on the 19th However I started to have very dark bleeding on the 25th and right now I am still bleeding But the bleeding right now is very very light Can you tell me any reasons as to why I am still bleedi

Probably OK

Probably a change in your hormones this last cycle due to ? or other factors. Not ovulating can cause this also. If the beeding continues or if your next menses does this again.. See your doctor.

Why don't I get my period? I'm 19 and not sexually active. I get my period once every three or four months and it's EXTREMELY painful. I can't even stand because the pain is so bad. What could this be?

When

When did you first start your period? Within the first 2-3 years of starting a period, a young woman may not have regular monthly ovulations which can lead to an irregular period. This is completely normal and nothing for you to worry about. Over the next few years, your period will become more regular. If you did start your period more than 3 years ago, there are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or polycystic ovarian syndrome. You've got 2 reasons to call your doctor - for the irregularity of your period and for the pain you experience. Your doctor will take a thorough history and physical and may run some tests to find out why your period is irregular. Often your period can be regulated (and be made less painful!!) by using hormonal birth control such as the pill or depo shot. Good luck!!

Why is my period so early? Hi Doctor, I started my last period on the 5th of this month, and for some reason it started again yesterday the 24th. Several day between that time i have had unprotected sex, but i also took a plan be on the 18th. Im really sc

That

That sounds more like spotting than a normal period. Please check a pregnancy test to be sure you are not pregnant. If you have any signs of infection such as discharge or pain then you need to have cultures taken. If you develop any pain or vomiting then please be seen immediately. Always use a condom to prevent infection and pregnancy.

Is

Is there a possibility you could be pregnant? As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear a woman is having a light or missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period or have a lighter period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise, weight loss, illness or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or poly cystic ovarian syndrome. If you continue to not have your period or if they continue to be irregular, you should contact your doctor.
