Cycles can vary: To a point. What concerns me is that when you say you are having them twice a month.... Is the bleeding heavy, spotting? It would be a good idea to be seen by your obgyn for an evaluation. This very well could be nothing but better to evaluated. Could possibly be resolved with simple oral contraceptives or may need further evaluation.
