hormonal imbalance or something more? (in a few categories)

I've learned that this is typical, but how likely is it that it's just a hormonal imbalance or is it more likely to be something more than that?
I was on the shot from 05-2004-01/2009, periods slowed and then stopped around 01/2005, and didn't start back up until 01/2010. My first one was 50days and very light...since then the most time in between periods was about 2wks, some periods have been "normal" lasting a week and being of normal flow, others have been about 2wks long and very light. With some of them I have the PMS symptoms (cramping, sore back, tender breasts), others I have no symptoms and BAM! it's here. These are the dates for my "period" 1/11-2/28, 3/12-3/17, 3/25-3/30, at least once that wasn't recorded, 4/29-5/8, 5/11-5/20, 5/29-6/3, 6/21-6/28, 7/5-7/13, 7/19-8/7, 8/24-8/30, 9/8-still. Doctor will be visited after I get insurance next month, just wondering what it seems I could be looking at....
