two periodsIf your cycle is shorter than average, say 24 days, it is possible that you would have two periods in one month and you should expect another period in 24 days. However, if you normally have a 30-day cycle, then something has probably interrupted your usual cycle. Sometimes this happens. Here are some explanations why:

1. Puberty
Two periods in one month is entirely normal for girls who are going through, or who have recently gone through puberty. It can take many months and even years for teenage girls’ cycles to become regular.

2. Reactions To Contraceptive Methods
Sometimes the pill, depo provera injections or the copper-only IUD can result in a change in your cycle.

3. Some Illnesses And/Or Medications

Be sure to speak with your doctor if you believe this to be the cause. If this is the cause, you should stop taking the medication or find alternatives and treat the underlying diseases.

4. Hormonal Imbalance
An imbalance of hormone like thyroid dysfunction can also cause increased frequency in a woman’s period. This is particularly apparent in women who are going through menopause, so it can be an indication of the onset of the menopause process.

Hormonal therapy is usually successful in regulating a woman’s natural menstrual cycle if this becomes a regular occurrence.

5. Abnormal Mass
Two periods in one month can also be caused by abnormal masses in the uterus, such as fibroids or cysts. These masses can cause discomfort and pain, as well as disrupting a woman’s normal menstrual cycle.

Medication can be used to help ease symptoms, but surgery is most commonly needed to remove the masses.

6. Thickening of Uterine Lining
Abnormal thickening of the uterine lining can also cause a woman to have two periods in one month. Thickening of the uterine lining can be caused by numerous things, like hormonal imbalance or consumption of estrogen.
