Filter Same Period Last Year With non Consecutive Dates DAX

Hi!! Please, can anyone help me withs this?

I need to build a formula that let me sum current period and too brings me the sum of the same period of the last year.


I have a problem with the SamePariodLastYear, DATEADD, and others Function. It works fine, but when I filter a disticnt months I get the error. Because the function only accepts contiguous dates In Slicer. The problem for what I researched is this, these functions only accept continuous periods, for example January, February, March etc. If I filter for example January, April, September then it gives an error.


If i filter "January" and "September" i need the formula brings me the sum of the same period of the last year, thats what i need.
