I've been having the double period for years now. Not consistently, I'll have as many as three every other week, which really wears me out. I become exhausted beyond belief. The flow can be unpredictable though too. I've had heavy dumping sessions, and I'm stuck in bed with those, changing clothes often, and sheets. And i've had flows that were normal, starting out spotting, then a heavy flow, then light, lasting up to 7 days and as little as 3 days. but usually, just 2 periods in a given month cycle. I ended a period not 7 days ago, and am just today, starting up a new cycle. My weight is fluxing too, 4 to 5 pounds, up and down the scale, never more, never less, just bouncing between the 4-5 lbs all month long. I exercise, I try to eat healthy and somewhat sensibly. I chalk this up to hormones and the onset of menopause, since I am 49. I was told at 46 that this was all part of Peri-menopause...
