In brief: Doctor can evaluate

The average cycle length (from the first day of one period to the first day of the next) is 28 days.
Anything from 21-35 days is considered within normal limits. There are many causes for irregular periods. If you are having periods every two weeks, you might consider seeing your doctor for a full history and physical to determine what the cause could be.

In brief: Irregular bleeding

While there are many different causes of abnormal vaginal bleeding, the most common causes of bleeding twice a month are either "breakthrough" bleeding among women who use low-dose birth control pills, or "dysfunctional uterine bleeding" due to stress, a condition in which chronic stress changes the cycling of your body's female hormones and causes extra bleeding.
The treatment is with hormones.
