Hi there,
Thank you for your question.
At your age anovulatory cycles are very common i.e. cycles where a lady does not release eggs from the ovary. When that happens irregularities in periods are very common.
So I would recommend that you should have an estrogen, progesterone, FSH and LH level.
You may be near your menopause or in the premenopause which is why you may be having these irregularities in your periods.
Kindest Regards
