In brief: Irregular

Irregular periods are very common, especially in young women.
Stress is a very real cause of abnormal or absent cycles. If there is a chance you could be pregnant, a pregnancy test should be done. Lastly if your abnormal cycles are an issue for you, you can start birth control pills in order to regulate your cycle. You will need to see a doctor for this. Good luck.
