What are the reasons for an irregular period?
Should i be worried if my period is irregular?

I' m 20yrs old and I started my period when I was about 15yrs old and all this time I haven' t really received my period every month. It sometimes skips to every two months....

There are a number of possible reasons - hormonal, not ovulating, polyps in the uterus, cervoix problems. the likeliest cause from what you have described is not ovulating. This is a problem if it goes on long term, as you dom not make sufficient amounts of hormones.
