    For the past 6 months or so, I have been having my period at least twice a month. I had a colposcopy done after my last Pap test was positive for abnormal cells and HPV. My doctor said it looked okay, and to come back in 6 months for another checkup. Meanwhile, my period is quite annoying and is making it difficult to manage my weight. I am also on depression medication. Is there something I can do to get my period back to once per month? Should I see my doctor again?

    You are not having your period twice a month, you are having abnormal vaginal beeding. Yes, you should see your doctor again.
