Thanks for writing to with your health concern.

Actually common conditions such as stress, anxiety, unaccustomed exercise, fluctuations in your weight, smoking, drinking, late nights, erratic eating habits, travelling etc - can lead to irregular cycles.
Apart from that, polycystic ovaries, fibroids or hormonal imbalances ( particularly the thyroid hormone ) can lead to this.

You should be having a complete evaluation.

A rare diagnosis is early menopause, less likely at 30 unless you have had such a family history.
What you are going through is most likely to be a period of transient hormonal imbalance.

You should see a Gynecologist and have the following workup -
1. An internal exam - per vaginum and per speculum.
2. Pelvic transvaginal ultrasound scan.
3. Hormonal estimates - FSH, LH, TSH , Prolactin, blood sugars. Get adrenal hormones tested too if the ultrasound is suggestive of polycystic ovaries.

Please mention your height and weight.
All the best.

Please feel free to discuss further.
