The average menstrual cycle is 28 days but can vary from 24 to 38 days. If you are frequently experiencing two periods in a month, it may indicate an underlying issue. Possible causes of having two periods in one month include:

1. One-Time Anomaly

Sometimes, having two periods in a month is not a sign of a problem. This is because a person may have a shorter menstrual cycle that includes two periods in a month.

2. Young Age

It is common for young people who have just started having their periods to have irregular menstrual cycles.

3. Endometriosis

Endometriosis makes a tissue that is similar to uterine tissue grow in other areas of the body which can cause abdominal pain or irregular bleeding that can be heavy enough to seem like another period.

4. Perimenopause

Perimenopause refers to the years leading up to menopause, when a person's hormones start to change. It may last up to 10 years. During that time, people often experience irregular menstrual cycles, like having shorter or longer cycles, skipping periods or experiencing heavy or lighter bleeding.
