Hi ,

Coming to your query 1. If u r married or sexually active - please do urine pregnancy test any time if there is change in frequency of ur cycle 2. If not - no need to worry- there are hundreds of causes which disturbs cycle frequency but we will rule out which harms ur health Causes- 1. Recent weight gain - loose weight 2. Check thyroid ( tsh) and prolactin levels - to see if any hormonal disturbanse 3. Hemoglobin 4. If above tests are normal a pelvic scan to look at ur ovaries and uterus. Please do these tests and review with results
