Hello Anonymous,

It is necessary to first determine the reason you are having irregular periods.

Age is one factor. Menstrual cycles are often irregular during the first few years after menstruation starts. Menstrual cycles also may be very irregular at the other end of the menstrual years. Many women realize that they are approaching perimenopause and menopause when their otherwise regular periods become irregular.

Weight is another factor. Excessive weight loss or gain, as well as obesity can cause irregular periods. Eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia cause irregular menstrual cycles.

A problem that causes a change in the levels of the hormones that your body needs to support menstruation is another factor.

I suggest you make an appointment to be examined by your physician.
