Do you have previous history of such irregularity/repeat periods in a cycle?

Dear customer,
Thank you for providing quick additional info.


The symptoms of having more then one period in a cycle you are having can be due to various causes like:stress,being overweight or underweight,imbalance of hormones,polycystic ovarian syndrome(PCOS)/estrogen dominance,uterine abnormalities (fibroids/cysts/polyps/endometriosis).

You need clinical examination,testing for thyroid function and other hormone levels.

A pelvic exam is required to rule out any uterine abnormality, a cervical polyp or fibroid, or a uterine infection.Also you need an ultrasound to evaluate the uterus, the ovaries and the fallopian tubes.

Stress is a common cause of such symptoms.


As you had the 3rd period since 12th march,this is not normal.

So I advice you to consult your gynecologist for the clinical examination to find out the root cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.


Hope this helped.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.

Thank you XXXXX
Dr. Robert
