Two Periods in One Month - Is It Ok?

The menstrual cycle, which is counted from the first day of one period to the first day of the next, isn’t the same for every woman. Menstrual flow might occur every 21 to 35 days and last two to seven days. For women with menstrual cycle less than 30 days, having two periods in one month is possible.
Keep in mind that use of certain types of contraception, such as extended-cycle birth control pills and intrauterine devices (IUDs), will alter your menstrual cycle. Talk to your health care provider about what to expect.

If you have a cycle less than 21 days, it can negatively impact your chance for conception and can even impact your ability to sustain a pregnancy. Short cycles have been associated with decreased ovarian quality—especially in older women. Women who did conceive with shorter cycles were more likely to undergo early pregnancy loss or spontaneous abortion.
