Hello,
Irreguler periods on a reguler basis is never right but before coming to a conclusion in your case when did your periods start( at what age)as just after yor periods starts there will be some irregularity for few months initially after that it should fall in place..Irreguler periods could be due to many causes hormonal problems- PCOD, thyroid ,underweight etc. Observe your period cycle for few months, see the gap between periods, during periods the duration, flow.If it regularises then you can relax but if problem persists consult gynecologist .

Dear Doctor, I last had a bone density scan a year ago which showed Osteopenia in my spine although hips were normal. I have an 8 history of eating disorders (mostly bulimia and only slightly underweight although irregular periods, until the past 19 months when things became more anorexic and BMI has been between 12.5-15 with no menstruation). My current concern is that following a fall a month ago I have pain in my coccyx which shows no sign of improving and I worry it may have 'crumbled' and that this is the beginning of me losing height. Is this likely? Many thanks for your help.
