Answer:
I also think you are too young for menopause. I recommend you see a gynecologist and get a full work up to find out what exactly is going on. It might be that you are going through a sporadic time where you aren't ovulating, in which case you wouldn't get your periods regularly, which is a common problem. Finding out for sure will give you real peace of mind.
