Recent sex?: if yes, do a pregnancy test to make sure you are not pregnant. If negative pregnancy test, you can attribute to anovulation (or irregular periods due to lack of regularity with release of egg from your ovary). If this persists, see your GYN who may be able to help regulate your cycle Best wishes Dr M
