Period came twice in one month? Why this can happen
Your body communicates with you in many ways, and your menstrual cycle can tell you a lot about your wellbeing. Here are a few things that can cause you to get your period twice in one month.
High levels of stress can cause you to either have more frequent periods, or completely missed ones. In most cases, if you’re very stressed about work, having exam stress or have experienced a traumatic event – you can activate hormones that can affect your cycle.
If you know you’ve been mentally stretched to the limit lately, consider doing some yoga or meditation exercises, or talking to someone who can help manage your stress. You can also chat to me.
Starting birth control, switching birth control, or failing to take it correctly can lead to irregular bleeding, because it causes an abrupt withdrawal of hormones. This kind of bleeding is common.
If you tend to forget taking contraceptive pills or the injection, you may need to learn about the different types of birth control to find one that works for you.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a rare hormone imbalance which affects your hormones and alters the levels of oestrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Most women with this condition experience missed periods or bleeding in between periods.
Weight Loss or Too Much Exercise
When you lose or gain weight quickly, your hormones may dip or increase, and this imbalance can cause you to bleed twice a month. The same is true with exercising Choma. This is because exercising is actually a form of (good) stress on your body. Pace yourself with your exercise routine and make sure you’re eating a well-balanced diet.
Excessive travelling can also disrupt your menstrual cycle. Travel is highly associated with stress and overall change of lifestyle, which can affect our bodies in more ways than we think.
When to consult a doctor
I recommend that you visit your healthcare provider if you’re experiencing the following,
Irregular periods for more than 3 months
Having an unusual amount of pain before or during your period
Having to change a pad, tampon, or cup often (every 1-2 hours)
Your body is unique and only you know it best. If you notice sudden and unusual period symptoms from what you’re used to, visit your healthcare provider and explain your symptoms so that you can get medical attention as soon as possible.
