    2 periods every month
    An_239644 posted:
    I am not sure if anyone can help me here but hey its worth a shot. To start with I have three children my youngest is almost 11 months. All three natural childbirth with no complications and yes this is the first time this has happened. I am currently taking the POP pill and breastfeeding my baby still too. Since my period started back up when my baby was 7 months I have had 2 periods, full week long periods, every month. I didn't think anything of it when they started just figured it was my body trying to get back on track its own way but now that it is still going on I am not sure if this is so normal anymore. My cycles have always been between 27 and 29 days since I was 14 or so until now. even on the pill it is not regulating itself and I don't want to bug my midwife about it before my yearly unless it gets worse. Besides getting my period every 12 to 14 days for 5 to 7 days at a time they are EXTEREMELY heavy too! I mean like I have to wear a super tampon and pad at the same time and bleed through both at least once a day. I have to change both every 3 hours or end up changing my clothes if I don't! I really don't know what to do at this point! Someone help Please!
