Starting in March I've been getting my period twice a month.I recently got off birth control in January. Each period lasts about the same length of my regular period. I'm a bit concerned, Ive gotten off birth control once before and never had this problem. Is this abnormal? How long should I expect this to last?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Change in period pattern and bleeding cycles after stopping with birth control use is not normal. Do not delay your visit to your doctor/gynecologist for further thorough evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Get started on appropriate treatment as indicated by examination and investigation results.
Take care.
