Hello ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Irregular periods can be due to hormonal imbalance;thyroid problems ;mental stress and PCOD (cyst in ovaries).Here in your case since your age is 43 yrs you need to consider another possibility also and that is pre-menopausal.Please consult a Gynaecologist and get examined to find the reason and get treated ;also at the same time to rule out menopausal complaints please find out at what age your mother had menopause and discuss with your Gynaec.
