Talk with a doctor: Irregular periods mean you don't ovulate reliably or regularly; if you have spontaneous periods you are ovulating sometimes. Any doctor who works with reproductive age women should be able to help you sort your cycles out better!

Talk to a doctor: A doctor can evaluate you for low thyroid function and can talk to you about several other causes of irregular or heavy periods. Some of the treatments are hormonal. Birth control pills are a common treatment, but there are other options that preserve fertility (allow you to get pregnant.). And you may need to be evaluated for pcos (polycystic ovary syndrome), a common cause of irregular periods.

OBGYN exam: You'll need to have an OBGYN exam to discover the cause(s). It may be very simple - even a variation - based on other body fluctuations. It's good to check from time to time and this may be a good reason. Hope it goes well. Best!
