Hi Tiff,

Thank you for your question. Periods are so abnormal sometimes that this would be a tough question to answer without checking with your doctor. This could be completely normal due to the fact that you missed periods for a couple months. Was there a chance that you may have been pregnant and this could be a miscarriage? Since there are so many questions regarding this situation, getting a checkup from your physician may be necessary to be certain there are no underlying issues going on.

Hope this helps and keep us posted.
