User avatar Hi shyconfusedgirl,
Menstrual abnormalities may be caused by numerous conditions, stress, hormone imbalances, uterine dysfunction, endometriosis, fibroids, etc., etc. If diagnostic studies, ultrasound, labwork, has not yet been completed then I would suggest that you discuss this with your physician.
