Hi Sarai,
The occasional irregularity as is seen in your cycles is quite common for your age and can be expected to settle in a couple of years. If you are sexually active and not on any contraception, you should be watchful. This disturbance occurs most often due to hormonal imbalance and if you experience difficulty from this, see your gynecologist for an evaluation and treatment. Maintain a proper body weight, avoid junk food and do some regular exercise at least 5 days in a week. Take care.
