Unusual Cycles

Twice in the past year, I've had unusual cycles and I'm not sure why. I don't have a regular cycle at all - it's always been irregular, and since I started tracking two years ago, my cycles have varied from 16 to 44 days. I've been tested for PCOS and the doctor says my DHEA, prolactin, and testosterone levels indicate that I don't have it. I do have Hashimoto's disorder, though, which can also contribute to irregular cycles.

The two cycles in question have been within the past year. In March, my period began on March 12, then on March 25, I had brownish spotting for about a day. My next period came on April 21, which is a 40 day cycle if I count from March 12. This past month, my period started on August 9, then on August 26, I had brownish spotting for about a day or maybe two days. then my next period just started yesterday on September 22, which is a 44 day cycle if I count from August 9. At the times when I had the brown spotting, I wondered if it might be BV because I had a slight burning sensation along with it, but in both cases, the spotting and burning went away before I did anything about it like schedule a doctor's appointment.

Does anyone here have any idea why this might be happening? I've read a bit about anovulation because I thought that's what it might be, but I'm not really sure this fits the description. I'm fairly certain that this has happened before, but at those times I hadn't started tracking my cycle yet, so I don't know the details. I've been on levothyroxine since January for the Hashimoto's, and I'm still trying to get my dosage regulated - the medication hasn't had any effect on my TSH levels yet.

Those are all the relevant details I can think of, and I'm grateful for any advice you VP'ers might have!
