Improper hormones: Irregular menstrual periods are not uncommon in adolescents and young adults. Abnormalities in your thryoid gland or pituitary gland, or your ovaries will cause this. Please schedule an appointment with your gynecologist for an examination and ultrasound to look at your ovaries and obtain levels of your estrogen and other hormones. If you are having sex, pregnancy can still occur.
