Multiple: There are too many causes to describe here. Hormonal changes, pregnancy, fibroids, polyps, ovulation disorders, bleeding problems etc. You should see a gynecologist to sort this out if it is recurrent. It is not uncommon for women to have maybe one aberrant cycle per year that is relatively unexplainable. Good luck.

Periods: Could be that you do not have enough fat to have regular periods. Are you very thin? Or are you very high in fat content? That could also mess things up. Other very common causes are low thyroid and high prolactin made in your pituitary. Get to a gynecologists and have a few labs checked. Also, are you possibly pregnant.
