Sometimes this occurs because estrogen and Progesterone (your 2 female hormones produced in ovary) are not in the right balance to each other. Sometimes it's due to pituitary or thyroid issues. And lastly, sometimes due to weight (too thin/heavy). If bothers you can consider birth control pills to help regulate. Best of luck. ...Read more
