Firstly, the Rambam in הלכות מקוות פרק א says: והטובל פעמיים במקוה, הרי זה מגונה. "Somebody who immerses twice is reprehensible." So it's clear that you never have to immerse more than once. Secondly, there's no obligation for men who are tamei to go to a Mikvah nowadays. As a result, your question "does that person have to use the mikvah twice or ...

Rambam seems to provide an answer הלכות אסורי ביאה ד,ו: כָּל חַיָּבֵי טְבִילוֹת, טְבִילָתָן בַּיּוֹם: חוּץ מִנִּדָּה וְיוֹלֶדֶת--שֶׁהֲרֵי הוּא אוֹמֵר בַּנִּדָּה "שִׁבְעַת יָמִים תִּהְיֶה בְנִדָּתָהּ" (ויקרא טו,יט), הַשִּׁבְעָה כֻּלָּן בְּנִדָּה וְטוֹבֶלֶת בְּלֵיל שְׁמִינִי; וְכֵן יוֹלֶדֶת זָכָר בְּלֵיל שְׁמִינִי, וְיוֹלֶדֶת נְקֵבָה בְּלֵיל ...

It really depends on why one is using the Mikvah, and "Men's Mikvah" doesn't help (other than to eliminate Nidah). For many, it is simply because there is an 'Inyan' and Mitzvas Anashim M'lumadah. In the absence of any clear reason why one is doing it, it would be very hard to pin down what Mikvah is acceptable. Specifically, without being very welled versed ...
