As a rule periods are Never regular for life long. Every woman experiences irregularity few times a year. Very rarely women have regular periods. You are just 20, and your body is till growing. Hence in the early stage till 21-22, periods may take time to stabilise, as the hormones needed to cause the periods are erratic. In patients of your age it is best to wait for the periods to normalise on its own.
Next Steps
Many girls of your age nowadays are seen to have excess weight, hairy skin, moustache like hairy growth on upper lips and irregular menses. This is suggestive of PCOS and here ultrasound may reveal a ovarian cyst. In such patients hormone tests are done to diagnose PCOS and they are given treatment. The ebst treatment is to lose weight. There are other causes of irregular menses like thyroid diseases, infections like TB, etc which have to be ruled out too. Please visit a gynecologist to get evaluated
