I am having irregular periods, what could be the reason for it ?

Want to know if the bleeding is due to my period or it is some other kind of pregnancy bleeding
Im having irregular periods. last month, i had my period for 3 days from 8th to 10 november and the period was lighter compared to normal and im again having a period starting from today. Im also not sure if it is a period or whether Im pregnant because i had intercourse 2 days before my last period i.e. on 6th november... though it was protected sex, i want to rule out the possibility of pregnancy and i also want to know if the bleeding is due to my period or it is some other kind of pregnancy bleeding? I also want to know the reason for my irregular period, if it is a period.....

By you might have got period or might be knowing weather it is aconfirmed pregnancy or not.If periods are irregular, go for ultrasound evaluation for any uterine pathology or polycystic ovary. If you are obese too there are chances of polycystic ovary. You get it done and be in touch with me. Also write about your marital status.

I stopped birthcontrol in november and also had sex in november. The last time i had a period was mid december. could i possibly be pregnant even though ive had a history or irregular periods. The whole reason i was put on birthcontrol was because my period were heavy sometimes and lasted two weeks. then i would turn around and have a period two weeks later, now im not having one at all.

I have been on the Nuva Ring for the past two and a half years and for the most part it has been a dream. The last six months or so my period has become sorta strange. For three months i had no period and when it did come it lasted for three weeks. THen the next two months no period and again I am now having the super long period. I have not changed my method of birth control and still use the Nuva Ring as directed. What could be causing such long periods and the absences of a period?
