Why is my period irregular?

I had my period on september 22, then oct 31, n then december 6. So the gap was around 30 to 40 days. But after dec 6 i again had it only about 2 weeks later on dec 24 which lasted less than 3 days. I had oral sex on the morning of jan1 N then again i had my period on the same day later only after one week. At first i thought it was just bleeding externally. But it was accompanied with back pain which happens to me during my period. N im still bleeding but its not as much as it used to during my normal periods. Why is this happening?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

Oral sex has no effect on the menstrual cycle.

You may be experiencing a hormonal imbalance. You have not mentioned your age but if you are over 35, this is not uncommon. If under 35, it could be due to hormonal conditions like polycystic ovaries or some other imbalance. Stress can also be a factor.

See your doctor for a blood test where your hormone levels can be analysed. Ask for your thyroid (another hormone) to be tested at the same time.
