Okay, so I had two periods last month, one ending around the 8th, and the other on the 31st. If i had two periods last month, will that mean I'm going to skip this month? I hate not being able to keep track of my periods it stresses me out.

The furthest I've ever gone was a handjob and that was like in June, do idk why im so worried. My brain likes to come up with the worst possible conclusion to everything. I feel like my stomach has been looking a little bigger right below the bellybutton but idk if that's fat, bloat, etc. (ik i've posted about very similar things before, sorry if im wasting your time)

But anyways, does having two periods in one moth mean that I will skip the next month? or will I have the period anyways? And I'm def not pregnant right?

Thank you so much, this website is literally a lifesaver ~<3

It's possible to have two periods in one month, especially if your cycle isn't very regular; that doesn't mean you'll skip one this month.

I think that because the average menstrual cycle is about as long as a month, a lot of people think it will come at the same time every month, or that there's ever only one per month without periods ever doubling up or skipping a month entirely. But even for folks with a perfectly-regular 28-day cycle, you can see that since most months are more than 28 days then the actual day the period comes on will vary, and you may have a month, as you did, with a period at the beginning and at the end.

There's some talk about the average cycle length here: On the Rag: A Guide to Menstruation

If you find that you're feeling a lot of anxiety around when your period comes, especially when you haven't had pregnancy risks, it may be helpful for you to keep track of when your period comes; it sounds like you did this last month, but if you do it long enough you may be able to see a pattern and say "ok, my average cycle is 25 days long" or "wow, my cycle's been all over the place this past year, I can't pinpoint an average length at all" and have a better sense, potentially, of when to expect your period (or to know that it's likely not going to come at a regular time).
