    Why am I starting my period twice in one month?
    An_252137 posted:
    I am 36 years old and I don't have any kids. I started my period May 3 and then again today May 30th. I had sex with my boyfriend May 20th and May 27th twice and May 28th. All unprotected. He pulls out. I don't take birth control. I work out every week and I worked out at 12:30am this morning for an hour with running and speed walking. Why am I starting early?

    How long is a normal cycle for you? You went 27 days between periods and that's about right since the average cycle length is 28 days.

    Well I should be starting June 4th. I start the same day every month.
