Hello.Welcome.You are doing exercises for past 20 days and that too for only 20 minutes.In no way it can be termed as heavy exercises.Your periods are definitely abnormal and you must consult a gynecologist for the diagnosis and treatment.Good luck.

Hello neethu
Welcome to healthcaremagic forum.
Periods within 21 days of previous cycle is termed abnormally no it is not normal to have periods within 15 days.
Yes vigorous exercise does cause hormonal disturbances but it should regularise once your body adapts to the new you may wait for another couple of cycles probably but if it persists then you should consult your gynaecologist.
Thank you
