Family Medicine
In brief: Metrorrhagia
I think that what you're talking about is called "metrorrhagia", which just means that the time of your periods is off, but not the amount of flow ("menorrhagia"); if you have both it is "menometrorrhagia").
The most common cause of irregular periods is stress. Obesity can be a factor, as can excessive exercise (like marathoners), and anorexia nervosa. I think you'll have to see an md to sort out.
