Two periods in one month?
j_n_s posted:
Starting July 2010 I got my "normal" period the beginning of the week, and then the last week in July I got my period again. Then the first week in August I got my normal period, and once again the last week in August I got a period again? And now in September I am almost 2 weeks late...? I am not taking birth control, and I can't because I have issues with my liver, I have had unprotected sex. I have "ALWAYS" had normal on time periods since I can remember. I have read I might be pregnant, could this be the case? I have two kids now and my period never did this when I got pregnant with them, it was light one month and then was absent the next so I knew I was pregnant then, but now I am so CONFUSED, and I don't know what to do or think...

If you think you might be pregnant, have you considered taking a pregnancy test?

j_n_s replied to georgiagail's response:
No I haven't because the thought never crossed my mind that getting two periods in one month would mean I was pregnant, until I read on the internet that quite a few people who find out they are pregnant have 2 periods, two months in a row and then it's absent, just like mine...I was hoping someone with the similar experience could give me advice or something, but oh well...thanks anyway, i'll probably go buy a test and check it out...
