More or less: What you described seems to fit with usual variations in menstrual cycles. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time 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.

Your hormones are: in flux for some reason. Many factors affect the normal flow of periods including age, season, weather, stress, exercise, body girth, nutrition, etc. I would wait until the period returns and see if the next cycle brings regularity. If not, then you can always seek the help of family physician or GYN provider to see if you can regulate your menstruation. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

It happens sometimes: Plan B can alter the menstrual bleeding for the cycle in which Plan B was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because Plan B works most of the time, but not all the time. ...Read more
