Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

If your periods usually change around February then this is what has probably happened. You had two periods lasting 5-6 days and the second one a week. So, you are unlikely to be pregnant. However, if you have a strong suspicion, take a pregnancy test and see. In all probability the periods will settle down March onwards.

Please consult your healthcare provider for further guidance. This reply to your query is just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit and treatment by a doctor who can examine you. Hope this helped you in making an informed decision about your health. Take care!
