Many possibilities: A woman's menstrual cycle is really a fragile thing. The menstrual cycle is affected by physical, environmental, and emotional issues. If you are overstressed you may alter your menstrual cycle. If you start a vigorous physical exercise program you may alter your cycle. If you decide to be a world-class gymnast you may not have a menstrual. At all. Consider what else is going on in your life.
