    Period Question
    An_248654 posted:
    I started my period on Oct 14th or so and it ended completely around the 18th/19th. It was fairly regular, if not a little on the strong side. On the 24th, I started bleeding again, essentially starting another period with cramps and everything. (In retrospect, i had cramps and slight nausea on the 23rd, just didn't know why).

    Should I be concerned? Or could this just be something random as my period sets into place? I am 19 and have had my period for about 8-9 years. It is often late by a week or so, but never this early. Once or twice it has been a week or so early, but never anywhere near three weeks early.

    You are not having a second period, you are experiencing abnormal vaginal bleeding that needs to be checked by a doctor.
