Get Urinary pregnancy test, Serum TSH, Serum Prolactin, Serum Testosterone, FSH/LH, Transabdominal ultrasound tests done to rule out the problem. You are likely to have a hormonal imbalance which might be causing irregular periods. Visit a gynecologist for further evaluation and treatment. You can also visit my clinic International Fertility Centre located in Green Park, New Delhi along with your medical investigations for further evaluation. You can mail your contact details so that I can reach you.
