Double Menstruation
Hi Doc, I have been menstruating the last couple of years for about 7 days, then I stop for 7 days and start again for 7 days.

The last experience I had with a Gynae was after I was raped, round about 12 years ago and since then, obviously I have not been to see one.

Does this sound serious? Please, I pray it does not.

I cannot tell what the cause of your irregular bleeding is without examining you. You will have to see a gynaecologist. Try to choose someone you are comfortable with so that the experience is as atraumatic as possible.
