Irregular Period Types

Shorter periods:

(Your period comes more frequent) usually signal that you are producing lower levels of estrogen during your pre-ovulate stage -- and that your FSH levels are higher than normal. With more FSH (Follicle-stimulating hormone) to stimulate them, your follicles are developing faster - which shortens your cycle.

Extremely light periods:

Usually means that you aren't making enough estrogen to build up your uterine lining. It can also be a sign of an anovulatory period.

Extremely heavy bleeding:

Is also often a sign of an anovulatory period, but in this case, estrogen builds up the uterine lining at the same time that you aren't producing enough progesterone (since you haven't ovulated and so created a corpus luteum). Without progesterone to stop it, the uterine lining keeps building up, until the estrogen production finally drops off and the lining is shed.

Skipped/less frequent periods:

Usually happens as your ovaries continue declining and your menstrual cycle starts cycling down. Over time, even extremely high levels of FSH don't produce enough estrogen for eggs to mature and for your uterine lining to thicken. As you get closer to menopause , your menstrual cycle usually lengthens. Periods come less frequently, there's more time between them. Then you may begin skipping periods. And eventually, in the biggest change in your menstrual cycle, you will stop having periods altogether.
