Possibly: Many possibilities, including pregnancy. Are you wanting to be pregnant? If so, you should be taking prenatal vitamins with folate, (folic acid) and do a pregnancy test if you've missed a period. Other causes of irregular bleeding include hormone imbalances (like polycystic ovary syndrome--pcos or thyroid disease), and more. See your doctor to find out, and if you don't want a pregnancy, discuss birth contol.

Depends on hormones : I think that would depend on the type of hormone you are talking about and the scan you had. If you didnt get instructions then check with your doctor first. Did you have a thyroid scan? Was it a bone scan or a density scan?

Check pregnancy test: When a woman often skips periods it is hard to know whether she is pregnant or not. Best thing to do is to check a pregnancy test. Next consider a reliable form of birth control so you don't have to worry. I recommend a woman with irregular periods see her doctor to figure out why they are irregular. Given your age you could be close to menopause.
