Menstruation delays

I am 24 yrs old and having problems with periods from the beginning itself. If I get periods, it will go properly for 3-4 months, then it stops for another 3-4 months. Then I have to eat papayas, dates or something super sweet for periods to start again. Its has been 3 months now since I have got my periods. Because of this irregularity, I am having growth in facial hair too. Is this serious and what should I do?

Looks like you are having anovulation with pcos features. Consult your gynecologist for check up, thyroid and other hormone levels, and ultrasound so as to plan treatment. It's manageable. Don't worry
