Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the recent altered periods that you describe without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. You should consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation to rule out underlying hormonal derangements, thyroid hormone imbalances, PCOS, uterine/endometrial problems etc. If you are having stressful life, consider getting started with relaxation therapies to help with stress control (as stress also can affect hormonal and thyroid hormone levels which further affects period pattern). Get started on treatment as appropriate (as indicated by examination findings and investigation results) to help you. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
