    Well, I don't have ANY periods (post-hysterectomy) but a more important question is whether these issues of bleeding even represent a menstrual period.

    How far apart are they?

    A "normal" cycle is often considered to be anywhere between 21 and 35 days so if your cycle is normally shorter it is possible to have two menstrual periods in a month.

    However, if you're talking about days or only a couple of weeks apart with the bleeding then it's time to look "outside the box" so to speak and consider the possiblity all this bleeding is due to some other medical issue that has nothing to do with menstruation.
