Detailed Answer:
Sometimes, conditions like stress, anxiety, weight changes, exercise, travelling, smoking, alcohol, late nights, erratic eating etc can affect the menstrual cycle.
Also, conditions like polycystic ovaries and hypothyroidism can further lead to irregular cycles.
You need to have a gynaecological evaluation and go for the following tests -
Complete pelvic transvaginal ultrasound scan.
FSH, LH, TSH, Prolactin, OGTT, DHEAS, Free testosterone, Lipid Profile.
All the best
