Hormonal changes: Any time one manipulates the ovaries (ovulation induction, suppression, etc..), the menstrual cycle can be affected and undergo residual changes. Symptoms don't seem too out of the ordinary. Continue to monitor for the time being (e.g. Menstrual calendar). If it persists for more than 4 months, see your ob/gyn.

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
