Look up : Pcos, or poly cystic ovarian syndrome. That's likely the culprit. You may need birth control pills to regulate ovulation and a medicine called metformin may help with weight loss efforts. If u have depression, wellbutrin (bupropion) and metformin in combo can be even better in your weight loss efforts, good luck.
