Last 4 periods were very close together; is that bad?

I got my period on March 31st, and it usually lasts for about 5-7 days. I was sexually active with my boyfriend during this period. On April 4th, my period ended.
About 11 days later, on the 15th, I got my period again. I don't remember for sure, but I believe it ended a few days later, say the 19th.
About 23 days later (the norm is 28, I believe?) May 13th, I got my period and it lasted until about the 17th.
Just about 14 days after that, May 31st, I got my period again, and I still have it now.
-I have not been sexually active since that week in April when I was on my period.
My periods have usually been regular, or at least very close to around the same time, maybe a few days off here and there.

Is this bad? I don't know what to do

What you need to be asking is whether these close episodes of bleeding even represent menstrual periods (they don't) or are due to some other medical issue that has nothing to do with menstruation.

It would be a good idea to make an appointment with your gynecologist to get this abnormal vaginal bleeding looked into.
