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 .
