Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

If there is a change in your periods and if there is a history of unprotected sex, then it would be wise to take a pregnancy test and see. If it is negative then test for hypothyroidism and PCOD. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please discuss these possibilities with your gynecologist once. Hope this helps. Take care!
