The typical menstrual cycle is 28 days, but everyone's cycles are different. A 20 day menstrual cycle is on the short side so if this is a regular thing or gets shorter then see your doctor, but otherwise don't worry.

What happens if you go over 28days between each period?

Nothing at all, it's normal. 28 days is the average menstrual cycle length - everyone is different so not everyone will have a 28 day cycle, also it's normal for cycles to change over time and for there to be a few days variation from one cycle to the next. If you go over 28 days then that simply means that your cycle is longer than the average menstrual cycle. Rather than expecting your periods every 28 days you should determine your own average menstrual cycle length. One menstrual cycle is the number of days from the first day of your period up until your next period, you add all these days together over your last 6 cycles and then devide by 6 to get an average. There are various apps for your phone or web sites that figure out your average menstrual cycle length for you. Take my cycles for example; July 25 (35 day cycle) June 20 (32 day cycle) May 19 (32 day cycle) April 17 (27 day cycle) March 21 (31 day cycle) February 18 (26 day cycle) So my average menstrual cycle is 33 days - as long as my periods fall within 26 to 40 days they are still regular. So you see my cycle is longer than 28 days, and there can be a little variation from one cycle to the next, this is totally normal and healthy.

Why do period happens twice in one month?

When you get your period depends on your menstrual cycle. If you have a 28 day menstrual cycle you will likely get your period once per month, where as if you have a 20 day cycle it is possible to have two periods in one month - e.g. you could get your epriod on the 1st of the month, then again on the 20th of the month.

Is it normal for a 13yr old to have her period twice a month?

Yes, this is completely normal. Firstly when you menstruate doesn't relate to the calendar, when your period is due is determined by your menstrual cycle - the average menstrual cycle is 28 days but many women's cycles can be shorter, for example if you had a 20 day menstrual cycle you may menstruate on the 1st of the month and then again on the 20th of the month. Secondly, irregular cycles are completely normal in your teens so this can result in you menstruating more often or less often than is normal - it takes time for the body to get into a regular pattern, so don't expect regular cycles until you're an adult.

In menstrual cycle when can't you get pregnant?

A woman may potentially get pregnant at anytime during her menstrual cycle. The likelihood of getting impregnated increases around day 14 which is ovulation day if the period is regular. Advice given to those who wish to avoid getting pregnant is as follows - use contraception and/or avoid intercourse between days 10 and 20 (especially day 14) of the menstrual cycle to decrease the chances of getting pregnant.

What does the number 20 signify in a witches coven?

AnswerTo my knowledge, the number 20 does not hold any particular significance to witchcraft.1 (god or godess), 2 (god AND goddess), 3 (god, goddess and offspring), 4 (seasons), 12 (signs of the zodiac), 23 (approximate number of days in the so called "male menstrual cycle"), 28 (approximate number of days in the female menstrual cycle, as well as days in a complete cycle of the moon) and other numbers DO directly factor into practices of various witches, but 20 is a number I've never encountered in this context.
