Follow up visit: It sounds like you sonogram showed polycystic ovarian syndrome which is the most common cause of irregular periods. The doctor who did the sonogram and has the blood test will have more information though to be able to explain your specific case. Consider a follow up visit and a discussion of options to regulate the cycles. Birth control pills is often useful in these cases to regulate periods
