Hi
Your BMI is high and obesity can cause irregular periods.
You can consult a gynaecologist and find out the reasons for irregular periods.
policystic ovaries can also be associated with obesity and inturn irregular periods.
If you are finding it difficult with your obesity take an opinion from a bariatric surgeon or endocrinologist.
hope you are convinced.
