    Diva Answers: “I See My Period Twice In A Month”

    For a year now, I have been seeing my period twice in a month. For instance, I saw it from the 30th of December to 3rd of January and from 25th of January to 29th of January. Please, what could be wrong with me? I am so worried.

    Dear Lola,
    This is completely normal.

    Your cycle is measured from the first day of your current period to the first day of your next period. The length of your period can vary. It is not always the same.

    The average length of a cycle is 28 days, but it may be as short as 21 days or as long as 35 days and still be normal. When your cycle is as short as 21 days, then it isn’t uncommon to have more than one period in a month. Most females have 13 periods a year which means one month you will have two periods.

    From your calculation, you have an average 26 day period which is fine. You are seeing your period twice in a month because a calendar month has more than 26 days.
