Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
I think there is a very good chance she is pregnant
There are a variety of other possibilities
1)thyroid dysfunction
2)polycystic ovaries
3)early menopause
4)ovarian failure
5)cycle not back to normal yet after getting off pills
I would start simple. Get her in to her GP and get an exam and pregnancy test done and go from there
