Have irregular periods for long time. Reason?

Hi, Im 20 and my periods are really irregular for no apparent reason, like literally 3 months there any reason for this? I came off the mini pill a year ago and I know that can have an affect on my cycle but to be honest my periods have been irregular for my whole life...getting one once a month would probably cause me concern for how rarely it happens. Just wondering if I have any reason to be concerned?

There are several reasons for irregular period like ovarian cyst or PCOD (most common in your case), hormonal imbalance, stress/anxiety, thyroid problem, wt gain/ extreme loss, irregular eating habits etc.

Need to investigate properly to rule out underlying pathology by USG lower abdomen & complete hormone assay, thyroid profile, blood sugar & prolactin level, blood testosterone level etc. Consult with your gynecologist for proper guidance and take suggestive measures.

Avoid stress/ tension, take healthy diet with Vitamin & iron supplements, control body wt and take sound sleep. You may need to take hormonal therapy to regularize period with other supportive medication.

Be well.
