Brief Answer:
Need hormonal evaluation.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
thank you for answering the questions, after analyzing your menstrual pattern, currently you are having an-ovulatory periods, that means there is no proper ovulation, which is commonly seen in PCOS-poly cystic ovarian disease or POF-pre mature ovarian failure. Bulky uterus is not related to your menstrual pattern, it could be incidental finding.
What I suggest you is serum FSH-follicular stimulating hormone, LH-leutinizing hormone, TFT-thyroid function test, serum prolactin levels--------all these tests to rule out hormonal problems.
Treatment depends on the cause, I suggest you to visit your OBGY specialist and get all these investigations done. After clinical evaluation you might be put on combined oral contraceptive pills cyclically for getting regular periods.
If you are overweight kindly lose weight, that can help you in regularizing the periods.
Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!

Kindly get it as soon as possible.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
I apologize for the late response; I was away from my computer due to unavoidable reasons.
Coming back to your question, as your periods are irregular, you can get the tests done irrespective of menstrual day. Otherwise ideal time is day 3rd of menstrual cycle.
Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!
