Its the first time this happens to me and I'm 23 years old! I know diabetes runs in my family so it can be that..

Hello Anonymous,

A woman's menstrual cycle is regulated by hormones. An imbalance in hormone levels causes changes in your period.

Perimenopause, diabetes and thyroid issues are just three conditions that can cause changes in your hormone levels.

This may be a one time occurrence. But, should you continue to have irregular periods, talk with your gynecologist or primary care physician.
