I would really encourage you to seek input from a doctor.  My foster sister who had frequent periods was then diagnosed with uteran cancer.

There are many causes of irregular and frequent menstruation. Benign causes include stress, excessive exercise, medications or perimenopause. More serious causes include diseases of the pelvic organs especially those with hormonal disturbances like polycystic ovarian disease. Read more about the causes of irregular periods

 

Good luck.  At the very least, you need to worry about anemia from the extra blood loss.

Are all the periods equally heavy? It's theoretically possible to mistake ovulation bleeding mid-cycle for a light period.

Have you been checked for fibroids?


DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.

Some causes of irregular periods..from a holistic perspective:

 

 


  • Significant weight gain or loss
  • Over-exercise
  • Poor nutrition (or a diet too high in carbohydrates)
  • Smoking
  • Drug use
  • Caffeine
  • Excessive alcohol use (interfering with how the liver metabolizes estrogen and progesterone)
  • Eating disorders
  • Increased stress
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome/estrogen dominance
  • Uterine abnormalities (fibroids/cysts/polyps/endometriosis)
  • Hormonal imbalance related to perimenopause
  • Medications
  • Chemotherapy
  • Recent childbirth, miscarriage, or D&C
  • Breastfeeding
