hello and thank you for asking HCM,

I understand your concern. My suggestion is to visit your gynecologist to make a proper examination because there are a lot of reasons why you have irregular periods.
One of the reasons is your weigt, either obesity, either weight loss, or eating disorders can lead to irregular periods. Excessive excercise, stress, emotional problems can also be a reason.
You may have gynecological and hormonal problems, such as policystic ovary syndrome.
So the best would be if you visit your gynecologist to see the exact reason. There are also medications to balance your periods.

I hope this asnwer is helpful to you.
