Hello and thank you for choosing EmpowHer,
Usually it takes time for your cycle to get back on track after you stop taking bill control pills. However, periods closer than 25-30 days apart can sometime signify something more serious than simply hormonal imbalances. Check out all the possible reasons at this article by EmpowHer.

In addition to knowing to different possible causes, I highly suggest you see a gynecologist to get a pap smear/ pelvic exam to make sure there is nothing very serious going on.
