It sounds like perimenopause to me, which is the transitional time before menopause starts. Your periods don't just stop all of a sudden, the lead up can take years.  And irregular menstruation, including more frequent periods, can be a sign.

Here's a little more info: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/perimenopause/DS00554

 

Hope that helps:)

If it's not menopause, maybe a hormonal problem?  I take iodine drops, which I have reason to believe are helpful for this sort of thing, although clearly not as effective as a real thyroid medication would be.  Maybe have your levels checked.
