late but long lasting periods

this has occurred 2 or 3 times now...
My period will stop for several months this last time i had a period in November that lasted 2-3 weeks then after that it stopped until March and again i have been my period 2 weeks in counting but this time around i have noticed more frequent clots that have been larger than normal i am 18 years old and not sexually active I'm not sure if this is due to stress as i am in my second semester of college or some other issue i want to go to a doctor but i am already low on funds as it is since im a college student and totally dependent on my mother

Okay, I don't know when you started your period.
Some girls start their period around the age of 16 (which would be considered late), and since you are not sexually active, I'm assuming it may be because you started your period late and your cycle is irregular due to the fact you have not had your period for that long. (Which is completely normal)

On the other note, it can't be because you're pregnant. As you said, you're not sexually active. As you mentioned, it may be because of stress, as stress can minimize your period. Either that, OR you may have amenorrhea (lack of menstrual flow).

See your doctor about this.
