    I got my period 2 weeks ago, right on schedule and exactly 2 weeks later I have my period again. Why would this happen? Thanks.

    A more important question is whether this second episode of bleeding represents a menstrual period (unlikely) or is abnormal vaginal bleeding due to some other medical issue that has nothing to do with menstruation.

    I don't think I have any other medical issue that would cause the bleeding. The bleeding is more than spotting, it's more like a period. I'm not on any birth control and I'm 42 years old. This has never happened, and just wondering if I should go see a doctor about it. I am still bleeding and it's been 4 days. Thank you for your help.

    Should you see a physician over this?


    Yes.


    The medical issues that MIGHT be the cause of this would include things like uterine fibroids (benign growths in the uterus that can cause bleeding if they expand into blood vessels), more serious tumor issues, irritated cervical problems, etc..


    The point is, abnormal bleeding should be checked out medically.
