There should be no minimum period unless you signed a prepayment penalty. Don't forget the banks make money every time they issue a loan. They'll be happy to refi for you every week if they could.
Instead of waiting to refi again, there is another avenue. Some lenders provide a float-down option where you have the option to get a lower interest rate if it goes down (from where you locked it at). However, there is a cost for this option and one just needs to determine if the difference in monthly payments is worth the cost for the float-down. Also, each lender will have their own terms of when you can exercise the option (i.e., only if the interest rate is more than x% lower).
Typically there arent any restrictions other than showing the borrower made their first months payment. Some lenders will run into a recapture issue where they have to pay back all or some of the back end proceeds.
