The irregular cycles that you are experiencing is quite likely due to hormonal imbalance. This is due to the fact that after child birth,sometimes,the hormone levels in the post partum period often fluctuate and sometimes may need some time and medicines to regularise. You should get some blood tests done first. Check the TSH,prolactin, LH,FSH .Ideally they should be done on the 2nd/3rd day of your menses. Since you are overweight,you may be having polycystic ovaries also. Hence an ultrasound is also needed.You should consult your doctor so that these tests can be prescribed to you. You will probably need medicines to regularise your cycles.
