Irregular: Irregular and missed periods happen due to irregular or missed ovulations. By definition you have ovulatory dysfunction, up to 30% of women have some ovulatory irregularity.

Hormonal imbalance: Irregular periods are caused when your body's signals for ovulation and menstruation get confused by hormonal imbalances that can be related to your thyroid (TSH), pituitary (LH/FSH/prolactin), ovaries (estrogen/progesterone). Many external factors can affect the hormones: malnutrition, stress, obesity, for example. Hormonal contraception can help to regulate your periods, which is healthier.
