Hormone imbalance. Hormone imbalance can cause this kind of problem. Usually it can last for one or two cycles. If it persists, after ruling out pregnancy, your doctor can try a course of hormone like Provera (medroxyprogesterone) for 10 days and see if it controls the problem. If not, you will need more tests to find out what is causing the hormone imbalance. Read more...

Hormonal imbalance. What you described falls within normal variations. 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.
