Two periods very close together?

Two periods very close together?

Have any of you experienced periods coming very close to each other?
I started my cycle on the 3rd and it lasted its usual 6 days. Now it just came back on the 19th. I rarely get them on time as it is, so actually having them back to back is a little scary. My Doctor isn't worried about it though.

I also had no cramps or vomiting with this period (which is normal for me), but bled WAY heavier than any other period I've ever had. I'm talkin' going through a pad and a tampon/diva cup within an hour.

What do you suppose could disrupt a cycle like this? Have any of you ever experienced this?

If you are bleeding through a tampon an hour there could be something wrong I am however no doctor. If you doctor isn't concerned but you are you could always go to the hospital to get checked out. I hope you are okay

Cycles are weird. My mom was once on her period for almost 2 weeks because she was seriously stressed out. Your cycle is almost as sensitive as your emotions can be, it's weird.

Was it just a general/family doctor? I would go see a gynecologist/specialis t just to double check. It's their job to know the female reproductive system and they could tell you a lot more than your normal doctor can.

My friend had a friend that had really irregular periods and found out that was a sign that she was going into menopause...I'm not sure if that's the case for you but her periods were REALLY irregular and went between heavy/light. Still, I'd go see a gynecologist before freaking out.

I hope you're okay. If you start getting light headed/weak I would go to the ER right away.

Thanks for the concern. I suppose what I meant with the swift change is my cycles were usually on the longer side, somewhere around 36 days. I'd get my period exactly 36 days after the last one, no matter what, so I counted it as regular. Then with there being no cramps at all, it was just such a strange change.

He wasn't a Gynecologist, but he's my primary who also takes care of yearly paps and STD testing. I suppose I should look into finding a Gynecologist.


Could the elimination of longerm stress cause a change? The fall semester was very rough, and I went through a pretty bad breakup last fall too. Maybe once the stress faded a little that made my period go haywire.

It's entirely possible. My period is heavier when I'm not stressed out, oddly enough. It also comes earlier in the day. This was something I recently found out after monitoring my cycle more closely.

I do hope the best for you I hope it's just one of those weird times I've had with my period. It's one of the reasons I started taking birth control. My period had a mind of it's own and would fluctuate too much.

Yeah if your bleeding through a pad/tampon an hr something is normally wrong. ER would be best bet.
