Your hormones control your menstrual cycle.  During each cycle, your brain's hypothalmus and    pituitary gland send hormone signals back and forth with your ovaries. These signals get the ovaries and uterus ready for a pregnancy.

The hormones estrogen and progesterone play the biggest roles in how your uterus changes during each cycle.

A change in hormone levels can affect your cycle. My guess is that a hormonal imbalance is responsible for your irregular periods. You should consider talking to your gynecologist about this.
