I got my period twice within a week and a

Patient : I got my period twice within a week and a half of each other. I am 20 years old, I have been taking Microgestin for birth control for about a year and a half now. This has never happened to me before. The flow was extremely heavy the first day and then tapered of to spotting for the following 3 days. Normally my flow is moderate for the first 3 days and light for the remainder of the cycle. What are some possible causes?
