Hello and welcome to eHealth forum!

This means you have irregular periods. If you are sexually active, then take a pregnancy test and see if this is due to pregnancy. The commonest causes of irregular periods are polycystic ovary, thyroid problems, high cholesterol, Cushing’s disease and disorders of adrenal gland, tumors of the ovaries and adrenals, insulin resistance, obesity and hormone imbalance. Please consult your gynecologist regarding this as a confirmed diagnosis is not possible on net. Hope this helps. Take care!
