Thanks for your query.
You are having irregular menstrual cycles.
Once in a while, in a woman's reproductive life span, such a solitary and isolated occurrence is often normal, and nothing to worry about.
However, without proper examination and consultation with a Gynecologist, it is difficult to rule out other causes of such an event.
The commonest reasons , if you are sexually active, could be a pregnancy or pregnancy related complications such as a very early pregnancy, a failing pregnancy, or an ectopic pregnancy.
Anxiety , stress, emotional upheavals, hectic and frequent travelling, job pressures, rapid and recent fluctuations in weight - all could be potential reasons.
Thyroid hormone dysfunction, high prolactin levels, polycystic ovarian disease - all need to be ruled out.
Endometrial diseases, hormonal imbalances, and ingestion of hormonal medications all are other likely reasons.

I would advise you to consult a gynecologist to rule out these causes, and then proceed with appropriate treatment as advised.

Take care, and feel free to discuss further.
