The top guess: Is that u have irregular menses do to irregular ovulation. If overweight and have bad acne, could be pcos. In any event, get on the pill, see doc too, get screened as indicated, but pill will help, take at night to reduce nausea and go with low estrogen if haven't been able to tolerate. It can take 3 months to regulate so be patient. Make sure your not anemic as well.

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. Since you missed more than two periods, it would be prudent 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.
