You seem to have some hormonal disturbance which may be temporary.
Whenever periods come after a gap they are likely to be prolonged / heavy/both.
If you are gaining weight ,be careful, because its the single most important cause of irregualr cycles.
You may start writting the cycle dates and analyse them.
Also notice hair growth on face, scalp hair loss, pigmented underarms , milky discharge from breast and swelling in neck.
If you take any hormonal pill please keep an account and be sure not to take them without prescription.
