Having 2nd period 1 week after 1st ended.

User Profile
Hi, I have fairly regular periods. Typically heavy with clots. I had my regular period 2 days early on June 8th. It was normal other than lasted an extra 2 days (ending June 15th). Then I started again on June 22nd and now I'm having moderate flow with clots. My last intercourse was on April 30th. I am not on birth control. I have a history of Migraines and Fibromyalgia. My migraines have also increased to several a week from about 2-4 a month in this time period. I do not have insurance. What could be the problem and does it need immediate medical attention?

Hello,

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

Polymenorrhea or bleeding from vagina more than once a month could be due to several causes such stress, vaginal infections causing pelvic inflammatory disease, fibroids, adenomyosis, endometriosis, uterine polyps, hormonal imbalance, thyroid problems and bleeding disorders. It could also be due to an IUD implant if you have one or due to oral contraceptive pills.

Wait for a few days and if the repeat happens then get the above mentioned causes ruled out from a gynecologist.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and regards.
