Pregnancy or other?: Irregular bleeding with bleeding <21 days from the start of previous period or >35 days is abnormal. Could be pregnancy, polyps, stds, fibroids, hormone imbalance, eating disorder, or other medical problems. See your doctor to check and be sure to write down dates of periods to discuss with your dr.
