Period is TOO frequent

I had normal, regular periods from the time I was 18/19 until about a year ago (25). I've yet to skip a period or have one come late, but now more often than not I have my periods with about a two week or less grace period in between. I've tried tracking a number of obvious factors - diet, supplementation, stress, exercise. I see a loose correlation between more cycling and more frequent periods, but nothing conclusive. I've seen my gynecologist about it, and she didn't have any explanation. I'm definitely not talking about spotting. Nothing else out of the ordinary, flow is about the same. Any ideas here?

I'm going to second the mention for vitamin d. I was having mine every three weeks until I started that. I have to take about 5000 IU to be at normal levels.

My mom gets periods twice a month. Her cycle is just way shorter than most. She has a healthy reproductive system. If you have seen the doctor and ruled out any major problems then I do not think you should be worried about the short cycle length.

Sounds like low progesterone. D3 deficiency can lead to this. Get your D3 blood level checked and sun/supplement to 50-60 ng/ ml. Make sure to get sufficient A, K and Magnesium.

Liver is a great source of A, K, and iron. Your iron stores may be depleted from the frequent bleeding.

These dietary measures can take 3-6 months for you to see a change.
