How to Get Regular Periods in Natural Ways

    Here are a variety of tips on how to get regular periods, from exercise to vitamin D supplements to dairy products. You want regular periods because they  make life easier, healthier, and happier! These tips for regulating your menstrual cycle are based on the most common questions I get from my readers.

    how to get regular periods natural waysThe Athena Menstrual Cup is a natural way to “collect” your menstrual flow. It’s a reusable, natural alternative to menstrual pads and tampons – and it’s great for avoiding waste and bulkiness for women whose periods aren’t regular. The menstrual cup is easy to use, and much cleaner than the more traditional hygiene products, especially for women with irregular periods.

    If you want regular periods, try as many natural ways to regulate your cycle as possible. Eat healthy foods, try complementary health treatments such as acupuncture, adhere to a regular sleep schedule, and do exercises that decrease stress. These will help regulate your hormones, which will regulate your menstrual cycle.






    Have you thought about herbal remedies to get regular periods? Read Women, Hormones and the Menstrual Cycle: Herbal & Medical Solutions. It offers practical help and information for amenorrhea (no periods), irregular periods, period pain, and more.

    And, one of my favorite books about women’s health and menstruation is The Venus Week: Discover the Powerful Secret of Your Cycle…at Any Age, because it goes beyond a woman’s cycle! It describes how to get regular periods, but it’s also about empowering us women to accept our amazing bodies. Here are several questions about and tips for regulating your menstrual cycle naturally…

    A Variety of Tips on How to Get Regular Periods

    Many women experience one or two irregular periods every six months. This isn’t usually caused by a serious medical condition, but if you’re worried about your period or other health issue, don’t wait to see your family doctor or gynecologist!

    Not getting your period for six months goes beyond “just” having irregular periods. Not getting your period is called amenorrhea — a total absence of menstruation. Irregular periods or oligomenorrhoea is when you get your period every month (more or less), but it comes at totally different times and at different flows (heavy one month, light the next).

    Q: I’m 20 years old and I haven’t had my period in several months…I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. I don’t have the money for a doctor visit and I’m scared something is wrong with me.

    A: Look for a free medical or health clinic for women in your area. Your health is too precious to ignore! Some clinics offer free physical checkups at no charge, but it depends where you live. I suggest calling your local women’s help line for information on free or low-cost physician visits.

    If you have don’t have a regular period, you first need to determine the cause of your irregular menstrual cycle. The most common cause of infrequent periods is polycystic ovaries. About 10% of women are affected by this common health condition, which causes very small (less than 1 cm) cysts on the ovaries. It’s associated with a hormone imbalance.

    getting regular periods naturallyPolycystic ovarian syndrome leads to irregular ovulation and an irregular menstrual cycle. To diagnose polycystic ovaries, you need one or more blood tests to measure hormones. And, a pelvic ultrasound scan of the ovaries is often taken as an additional test.

    Seeing a doctor in person really is the most important thing you can do to get your menstrual cycle regular again! And, the standard health advice always applies: to balance your hormones and regulate your menstrual cycle, get regular exercise (but don’t exercise excessively), eat a healthy diet, get the sleep your body needs, and deal with stress in healthy ways. And, if you’re taking prescription medication, find out if it affects your hormones (which affects your period).

    Making Spotty Periods Regular

    Q: I’m almost 19 and my periods have never been regular. I have anemia and sometimes my periods will skip 2-3 months or just be a few weeks late. What could be causing this and what is a safe way to regulate my periods?

    If you’re anemic, then you don’t have enough iron in your body to support regular periods. To make your period regular, you need to figure out the cause of the anemia (low body weight? blood loss from another health issue?), and treat that. And, you need to take iron pills or eat iron-rich foods to boost your iron levels. Both these suggestions require a visit to the doctor, I think. Some pharmacies won’t sell iron pills without a doctor’s prescription (depending on where you live). So, get thee to a doctor and get your anemia checked and treated….

    Also, your hormones influence menstruation. If your hormones aren’t in balance, your period won’t be regular. If your periods are irregular, ask your doctor to measure the hormones in your blood. A test like this will help determine if you have a serious hormonal problem. But, note that some doctors belief that since “normal” varies greatly with regard to women’s hormones, blood tests may not be the best measure of the more subtle imbalances in your cycle. If you have irregular cycles, you need to talk to your doctor to determine the best tests.

    Age and Irregular Menstruation

    Q: I’m 37 and have two children. Could my irregular periods be because I am getting older?

    natural ways to get regular periods

    How to Get Regular Periods in Natural Ways

    Our bodies — and our menstrual cycles — definitely change as we age. Many women have irregular periods in their teens, and more regular ones as they reach their early 20s. Other women, however, always have irregular periods no matter what…and still others are like clockwork from day one!

    Weight also influences hormonal balance and menstruation. If you’re overweight or underweight, your hormones will stop working properly and your periods might stop altogether. Recent research has also shown that obesity can throw hormones out of balance and make it harder for women get pregnant.

    Stress also affects the hormones. Many women find that if they are worried about something, it can influence menstruation. In some cases, a woman’s period might actually stop if she is very worried about whether she is pregnant!

    Periods, Fertility, and Dairy Products

    Q: I’ve read that low-fat dairy products actually increase infertility risks while full-fat dairy products reduce them. Could incorporating a little full-fat dairy into my diet help regulate my menstrual cycle?

    Yes, research that indicates that full-fat dairy products can increase fertility levels. Incorporating a little fat into your diet may help regulate your period. Balanced, regular hormones lead to a regular menstrual cycle (including ovulation and fertility, which helps you get pregnant!). The way dairy products are processed (to make dairy low fat) may affect the proteins, which in turn affects our hormones.

      If you haven’t talked to your doctor or gynecologist about how to get regular periods in natural ways, then you need to do that as soon as possible! The internet is a great source of general information about medical issues, but it’s not a good place to get personal health advice.

      Go see your doctor. Get a pap smear. Learn more about your body, so you can find ways to regulate your period naturally.

PLEASE HELP ME

    15. Ciara says:

      Hi!
      I’m 17 years old and I got my first period when I was 13 but it only lasted a day. Then I waited six months until my next one which was normal – 4/5 days, and after that it was another long wait. I had very bad acne so I was prescribed birth control by my doctor to regulate hormones. I was on this for 6 months, durning which I got regular periods. Once it was finished there was 2 months where I got no period, and then I went back on the birth control prescribed by my doctor. I finished up about six months ago, and since coming off the birth control I’ve had no period. I wasn’t worried at first because I’ve always been irregular but now it’s a bit alarming…. I was anaemic when I was younger and it came back again recently. I’m an average weight about 70 kgs and I exercise regularly. Just wondering if there’s a simple explanation and some things I can do myself to regulate my cycles, or if I’m better off going to see my doctor?
      Thanks 🙂

    23. Laurie says:

      If you want regular periods – and we all do, because regular periods make life so much easier! – you need to see a gynecologist in person. You can’t get personal health care on the internet. Articles and tips for regulating your menstrual cycle are good for basic information, but you need in-person help from a doctor if you want regular periods.

      I know it’s not fun to go to the gynecologist, and it can be expensive. But that’s the best solution, the best way to take care of your health.

    27. Laurie says:

      Thank you for trusting me enough to ask for further help on how to get your period in natural ways! Unfortunately, though, I can’t offer medical or health advice. I wrote this article for women who want regular periods as a starting point. If these tips for regulating your menstrual cycle don’t work for you, then you need to book an appointment with a gynecologist. You might also think about seeing a naturopathic doctor. You need to get gynecological tests done, so you can figure out why your periods are irregular.

      I wish you all the best — I pray for healing and health in your life and body!

      Please talk to your gynecologist or family doctor if you want regular periods. The internet is a great place for general medical advice and tips for regulating your menstrual cycle, but it’s no place for personal medical advice.

      You need an in-person gynecological exam to figure out why your periods aren’t regular, and how to regulate your menstrual cycle.

      It’s of utmost importance to talk to a gynecologist or family doctor – or a naturopathic doctor – in person, if you want regular periods and need tips for regulating your menstrual cycle. I can’t give you any medical advice over the internet. You need to get checked out in person, by at least one doctor. That’s the only way to get medical advice!

      Srilakhmi, I’m glad you are here! I wish I had all the answers for how to get regular periods, but I don’t. You need to talk to a gynecologist or family doctor in person, so you can learn what your body needs to regulate your menstrual cycle.

      Thank you for being here, Anji! Did you take your doctor’s suggestion, and get your thyroid checked? That might help you and your doctor find ways to get regular periods. I can’t offer health advice on how to regulate your menstrual cycle, as it’s important to get in-person doctor checks!

Also I have hair growth on my chin……doctor has suggested me a thyroid checkup…. normally they delay by 5 days…… but are not regular…. So what should i do…..

    44. Laurie says:

      Dear criselda,

      Sometimes teenagers don’t get regular periods for a couple of years – but every girl is different. The best way to find out why your menstrual cycle isn’t regular is to talk to a doctor. I know this isn’t the easiest way — the easiest way is to get free tips on the internet for regulating your period! 🙂 But you can’t get personal health advice online.

      In fact, it can be dangerous to get medical tips on the internet because every woman’s body is different. The internet is a great place for general tips on how to get regular periods and have a healthy menstrual cycle, but personal advice has to be given by a doctor in person.

      Please talk to a doctor, and get examined in person. That’s the best way to learn how to regulate your cycle.

      Blessings,
      Laurie

    45. criselda says:

      Hi. I’m 15 years old. I didnt have my regular period. After july, i didnt have my next period. Until now. I have my 1st menstruation when i was in grade 5. I think i’m 11 years old in that ime. Please help. Thank you.

    46. Laurie says:

      If you want to regulate your periods and have a menstrual cycle that is more regular, you need to talk to a doctor in person. A gynecologist is a good place to start.

      You might even consider talking to a doctor of Chinese medicine, perhaps one who specializes in acupuncture or herbs to regulate your hormones.

      Be careful about seeking medical advice on the internet. It’s potentially dangerous to your health to ask for health tips that are specific to your body! A doctor must examine you in person before he or she can give you medical advice.

      My tips for women who want to regulate their periods are general, and won’t harm you. But if you need specific advice for your menstrual cycle, you need to talk to a doctor in person.

      Dear Sathya,

      I can’t advise you on whether you should continue the Siddha treatment for regulating your menstrual cycle, but I do know that it can take weeks or even months for a medication to take effect. Sometimes it’s important to take a treatment for three months before you decide it’s not working.

      What does your gynecologist or naturopathic health doctor say about this treatment for getting regular periods?

      Blessings,
      Laurie

    55. Laurie says:

      If you want to regulate your periods, you need to see a gynecologist in person. Get a pap smear or other test to determine why you aren’t menstruating regularly. Trying exercises, such as yoga, might help. I don’t know about herbal remedies – it really depends on what medications you’re taking and the reason you aren’t getting regular periods.

    63. Laurie says:

      What does your gynecologist or doctor say about your periods? Have you had a pap smear or check up? That’s the first step in trying to get regular periods – as well as staying healthy, exercising, and eating nutritious foods.

      I’m sorry I can’t give medical advice, or help you diagnose your period problem. You need to talk to a doctor and get examined in person.

    78. Laurie says:

      Exercise and diet can help women get regular periods – but it really depends on why your periods aren’t normal! I can’t tell you what exercises to do or foods to eat to make your periods regular, because you may have a health issue that is affecting your hormones and menstrual cycle.

      If you can’t afford a doctor, I don’t know what to say. Can you ask your parents for a loan, or go to a free clinic?

    79. bel says:

    82. Laurie says:

      Dear Dee,

      Have you gone to the gynecologist for tests on what could be making your period so irregular? There are a number of factors that could cause it, or it could be something as “simple” as stress, weight gain or loss, or lack of sleep. The best way to figure it out is to talk to a doctor or naturopath in person, and get a physical examination.

    83. Dee says:

      Hi, I have been taking the pill for about 3 and a half years. I stopped taking the pill in July 2012, and since then I have not had a proper period. In December I started spotting blood when I exercise but only when I wipe. That has continued… I have still not had a period. Unsure what to do, I have also been having unprotected sex with my husband for last few months and have done a pregnancy test which has shown negative.

      Any advice?
      Thanks

    84. Laurie says:

      I’m sorry, but I can’t give advice on how to get regular periods. It depends on your body, your genetics, your health issues, and what prescription medications you’re taking.

      Obesity or weight gain can make your periods irregular, and so can stress and lack of sleep. If you want regular periods, your first step is to go see a gynecologist. Then, if he or she doesn’t help, then go see another one.

      And, make sure you’re eating healthy foods, getting enough sleep for your body, and coping with stress in healthy ways.

      I wish I could be more helpful, but I can’t! You need to get health advice from a doctor who can examine you in person.

      Sincerely,
      Laurie

    93. Sara says:

      Hi Laurie,

      Thanks for your reply. Actually am more happy here living with my husband. The problem is the weather over here in US it changes and my body don’t get heat its always cold did and ate all which is needed even then its not. And regarding the medicine i searched and asked the doc nothing negative even then Am scared.

    94. Laurie says:

      Dear Sara,

      I don’t know what to say – I’m not a doctor and I don’t know anything about medications. The good news is that your blood tests came back as normal!

      Are you stressed out about your move to the US? Stress has a direct effect on our hormones, which directly affects our periods and overall health.

      Have you researched the prescription medication, to make sure it doesn’t impact your future fertility? Did you ask your doctor if it would stop you from getting pregnant in the future?

      Do you remember what medication you got in India, that regulated your period?

      I’m afraid I can’t be more helpful. But, many women have irregular periods all their lives. I just got my period today, which is exactly four weeks from my last period. But last month, my period was 2 weeks late. I believe irregular periods are just part of being a woman – and our periods are affected by our weight, lifestyles, stress level, exercise, food, etc.

      I wish you all the best in the US, and hope you’re able to find the right solutions for your health.

      Blessings,
      Laurie

    95. Laurie says:

      Dear Anna,

      Maybe you lost too much weight – sometimes extreme weight loss or weight gain can cause irregular periods.

      I’m glad you got checked out by a doctor. It’s true that teens often have irregular periods – and some women have irregular periods all their lives. The good news is that all your test results came back normal!

      My advice is to wait for 6 months, and try not to stress out about your periods. If they’re still irregular after 6 months, then go see a different doctor.

      Remember that our bodies and health are constantly in flux, and rarely predictable! But you have to trust that your body is healthy and strong, and your period will be normal again.

      Also, make sure you’re of a normal, healthy body weight. Eat regularly, and eat healthy foods. And don’t forget to exercise for 30 minutes a day!

      Blessings,
      Laurie

      Hi,

      I am from India. I am married and i came to US(north east) on october 2011 and still over here. When i was in India i was having regular periods once in two years or so i would get irregular but still i would goto doc and clear up everything but after coming to US for past 9months my periods is irregular so i went to doc over here in april 2012 and he asked me to take medroxy progesteron( 10 mg) for 10days and also they took blood test and said everything is normal but still i am taking the pills( dec 2012) in the middle for 3months my periods( july-september) was been regular now again it became irregular and finally this month i took the tab which doc prescribed for 10days i took it and its been 14 days but still i haven’t got my periods i don’t know what to do and also taking medicines like this would cause problems i think…. please help…. And to your note doc has given refills for a year…. Please help me i am scared whether i would get any problems in getting pregnant. For your information i am not pregnant i took the test too.

    98. Laurie says:

      Hi Sasha,

      If your period isn’t regular, you may have a more difficult time getting pregnant. But, at age 19, you’re more likely to get pregnant faster than if you were in your 20s and 30s – that’s the good news!

      Have you talked to your doctor about why your menstrual cycle isn’t regular?

    99. Sasha says:

      Hi I’m 19 me and my husband been trying to have an baby but seems not to happened. I always had an irregular pd. I don’t know what to do :/

    100. Laurie says:

      If the above tips don’t help you regulate your periods, then you need to see a gynecologist in person. Please don’t seek medical advice over the internet, because you could do serious damage to your health!

      The only person you should get medication or health advice from is a gynecologist or health practictioner who has examined you in person. Regulating your period may seem like something you can do online, but there could be underlying issues that are causing problems in your menstrual cycle.

      Please see a doctor in person. If one doctor doesn’t help, then see another one. Get a second opinion.

    135. Lauren says:

      Hi, I am 27 years old. I was recently told that I have polycystic ovaries, but tiny cysts, according to an ultrasound, however when I took a blood test everything came out in the normal range. I have been having irregular periods (once got a period every 28 days exactly). I also lost a lot of weight, but recently gained a lot back, yet still my periods are very irregular. I suffer from minor acne as well, and noticed that for a few months at least I’ve had a dark spot that looks like a bruise on my elbow (doesn’t hurt). My questions are: if my blood tests came out negative is it possible that I do in fact have high androgen levels, and 2) if my weight and body fat are in the healthy range but I am not getting a lot of fat in my diet can this cause irregular periods as well?

      Thanks. Please feel free to e-mail me.

    163. Caramel says:

      I’m 23 years old. My cycle has always been regular, but it is now January 25th and I haven’t had a cycle since November 24th. I went to the doctor and my results for my pap came back normal and the doctor said it may just be stress. I was thinking it could be irriation of my bv in which I have always struggled with, but apple cider vingar baths seemed to help that. There is no possible way I can be prego because the one time had sex was when I was 20. I have had at least two paps since then and was tested for the evil twins (c and g) for precaution. The doctor also gave me some birth control to help my regulation, but I need to have a cycle before taking them and going to my follow up in a few months. I’m bloated in my stomach. I know my body and take very good care of myself so it just seems very odd to me. Any suggestions?!?

    164. ashley says:

      Hi my gf has been going over 3months w/o her period n then wen she does it can last as much as 1year an even longer. She says that’s how its always been since she was a teen n the docs don’t know wats wrong. Her eggs r jus fine, but she’s jus infertile. We’re not trying to have a baby, jus trying to figure out wat our options would be ahead of time (an surgery isn’t the answer, she’s 24). They even said her filopian tubes r fine as well, only that her hormone lvls r off (something bout havin to much of a sertain kind, I don’t remember). Is there a way we could help her achive more “normal” periods so she won’t bleed so much as well as increase her fertility naturally, because there’s so many meds that can really screw w/a womans body (plus sertain meds they gav made her throw up blood)

    190. The best way to get help if your period isn’t regular is to see a gynecologist or doctor in person. If you’re not getting your period, or if it’s not the way it usually is, then you need to get a physical examination in person.

      It’s not possible to get good medical advice that pertains to your body over the internet! You can get facts and opinions on the internet, such as these tips for getting a regular period, but you can’t get solid health advice that is specific to YOUR body.

      If you want to regulate your cycle, you need to see a doctor in person. Be careful about asking for medical help on the internet, because the person giving it has no idea what’s going on in your body.

      I’m sorry I don’t have any easy answers or quick fixes. I wish I did!

      I am a teenager.i was obese few months ago so i started dieting. now i am really skinny and miss my menses for three months.i am really depressed and worried.i have consulted doctors and tried few medications but they dont seem to work.please help me.

    194. Dear Keerthana,

      Weight gain and obesity can stop women from getting regular periods, no matter how much they want them!

      I think your first step should be to go the doctor, and get help with your weight problem. Once you lose weight, your hormones may become more balanced and you may get regular periods.

      Have you been to a doctor or gynecologist yet?

    196. Hello Tag,

      To get regular periods and regulate your menstrual cycle, you need to eat healthy foods, watch your weight, get enough exercise, and keep your stress levels low. The best way to get a regular cycle is to stay as healthy as possible, because good health balances hormones (which leads to regular periods).

      Hey! I am 14 i have regular period till august but in september it didn’t come at time what can i do to bring it back naturally without visiting to a doctor

    198. Hi everyone,

      I really wish I could tell you how you can get regular periods, but I can’t! To make your menstrual cycle regular and healthy, you need to visit a gynecologist or doctor in person.

      If you’ve already visited a gynecologist or doctor and your periods STILL aren’t regular, then you need to get a second opinion, or visit a naturopathic doctor.

      I’m sorry, but I can’t give personal medical health advice. This article about regulating your menstrual cycle is for general purposes, and I can’t offer individual health tips.

    203. Shish ~ There really isn’t any way to make your period come early, other than to stay as healthy as possible. Some women don’t have regular periods no matter what they do; their bodies and hormones are just unpredictable. Other women are regular no matter what. Some women find a balanced diet, staying at a healthy weight, exercising, and dealing with stress in good ways help with regulating their periods, but others simply have irregular cycles. Which are you? It may be too soon to tell. But you may need to accept that sometimes your period will be late, early, or different than it normally is. I also encourage you to talk to a doctor if your periods are suddenly abnormal or really different than before. It could be a sign of something more – or it could just be normal. The only way to find out is to get checked!

      Kayloh ~ That’s great that you’ve seen doctors, and that you got a second opinion. Good for you! I’m confused, though…did you say that you’re trying to get pregnant and you’re on the pill? I’m not sure I understood correctly.

      Rashmi ~ Has your period come yet? Taking the birth control pill after unprotected sex probably won’t make it come. Let me know if it’s arrived!

    207. Hi Naina,

      I’m good, thanks for asking! 🙂

      Have you got your period yet? If not, the best way to know if you’re pregnant is to get a pregnancy test.

      Sometimes our periods are late, irregular, or different than usual for different reasons: stress, hormone imbalances, weight gain or loss, etc. So your late period doesn’t necessarily mean you’re pregnant.

      Make sure you take some sort of birth control in the future, so you can avoid the chance of pregnancy in the future!

      Let me know if you got your period…

      Blessings,
      Laurie

    209. Hello Farah,

      I’m not sure what you’re asking…but I suspect that no matter what it is, my answer is the same! If you want regular periods or want more time between pregnancies, you need to talk to your doctor. I can’t give you personal medical advice, because I don’t know what’s happening in your body.

      Please go see your doctor, and let me know how it goes.

      Blessings,
      Laurie

      hello there..i’m 29 old n mother of 2 children..i have 1st period after birth on 18 may n last period on 23 may.so maybe now i skip my period.what can i do? maybe i lot of stress think about mybe i get pregnant.or maybe take care of my children will be stressful.for your information range of i’m get pregnant before this are 1 1/2 years..so i want interval my pregnancy? can u help me..plz..

    211. Manju ~ I’m sorry you’re not getting a regular menstrual cycle, but I can’t offer specific medical advice. The only person who can help you properly is a doctor who has examined you in person. Please go to a different doctor, and get a second opinion. Maybe you could try a naturopathic doctor, or natural herbal remedies for your period. But I can’t give you specific things to try.

      Mazoomiya ~ Take a deep breath, and try not to be scared! You need to stay calm, because being afraid and anxious won’t help you get your period. Some women have late periods and even skip them altogether – it doesn’t necessarily mean they’re pregnant! I don’t know how many days it’s been since you had intercourse, but it may be time to try a pregnancy test, just to be sure. I don’t know any specific ways to get your period, other than to relax and try not to stress. Let me know how it goes.

      Blessings,
      Laurie

    214. You’re welcome, DK! I appreciate your thank you 🙂

    215. DK says:

      thank you so much for ur response..appreciate ur time and effort..love 🙂

    216. Hello DK,

      Stress can definitely cause irregular periods, and it can take a few cycles or months before things get back to normal.

      I can’t suggest medication — the only time you should think about meds is after a doctor examines you in person and prescribes them.

      If you haven’t gotten your period in 3 months, I encourage you to see a doctor. Maybe it’s just stress that’s causing it to be MIA, and maybe you just need another month or two to normalize. Or, maybe there’s something else going on. It’s probably easily remedied — but you really have to see a doctor in person to find out.

      I hope this helps a bit, and that your period comes soon!

      Blessings,
      Laurie

There are some months where I get it too early and some months where I don’t get any at all. I went to a doctor to check my ovaries but she said there was nothing wrong with them. She said that it was normal and that even people who get their period for once a year is also considered normal. (What?). I do not enjoy having irregular period because it’s hard for me to know whether it is period and whether it is blood from something else, you know? I am not sexually active but I do M at times. And I sometimes bleed soon after. But then when I check again, it’s period. Do you see how confused I am?! the doctor did not give me any medication as she said I don’t need to add a lot of chemicals in my body as it is. So, just to get a second opinion, what do you think I should do?

    223. Hi Jannat,

      I think you should talk to a different doctor, or a naturopathic physician. In order to get regular periods and learn if you can get pregnant, you MUST get checked out by a doctor.

      You must feel scared and anxious, and my heart goes out to you. But, I can’t tell you how to get regular periods or if you’ll conceive a baby! Only a doctor can do that.

      Be careful about reading stuff on the internet and applying that to your situation and body, and about taking personal medical advice from strangers online who aren’t doctors, who haven’t examined you in person.

      If you haven’t seen a gynecologist, please see one as soon as you can.

      Blessings,
      Laurie

      If you aren’t getting regular periods, you may find this article helpful:

      You should also talk to your doctor or gynecologist, and find out the reason you don’t have regular periods. Don’t just rely on information on the internet — get an in-person physical examination!

    227. Hello Lindsay,

      I encourage you to talk to a gynecologist — get a second opinion if you’ve already spoken to one.

      Remember that different birth control pills have different side effects, so you may need to experiment with a low-estrogen pill, or even a different dosage of the pill you’ve already tried. But this is for you and a gynecologist to figure out together.

      You might also consider talking to a naturopath, who may be able to offer natural supplements that regulate periods. Another natural way to balance your hormones is acupuncture, which doesn’t involve talking hormones.

      I encourage you to research different types of natural ways to balance hormones, and talk to a few different naturopaths. The first visit is often free, and can give you a good sense of what the naturopath offers.

      I hope this helps, and wish you all the best,

      Laurie

      Hi Laurie,

      I’m 20, and I’ve never had regular periods. I get maybe one or two a year, if I’m lucky. I have tried taking the pill, but it causes too many side effects that I just can’t handle. I need a way to regulate my hormones that doesn’t involve taking hormones.

      Hi Joanne,

      Yes, you can track your ovulation so that you get pregnant!

      And, you can talk to a doctor or naturopath about the best ways to regulate your menstrual cycle. Tell him or her you want regular periods because you want to get pregnant!

      I hope it happens fast for you…

      Best wishes,

      hi their my periods r not always on time im trying for a baby with my husband but nothing as yet is their anything i can do

      Dear Shaby,

      Taking a home pregnancy test might make you feel better, but you need to wait for a week after you miss a period. So yes, you should wait for your next period, and then take a pregnancy test (unless of course you get your period!).

      And yes, it is possible to get pregnant even if you use a condom. They sometimes break. Going on the pill is a good way to avoid pregnancy if you’re in an intimate relationship.

      Let me know how it goes!

    233. Laurie Pawlik-Kienlen says:

      If your periods or menstrual cycle isn’t regular, then you really need to see a doctor! There could be many reasons for painful periods, missed periods, or light bleeding….and the only way to get healthy treatments is to get checked by a medical professional.

      Please don’t try to get specific medical advice from the internet — it could be harmful! You need to get advice that is directly related to you. It’s fine to get general medical advice on the internet — such as these tips for getting regular periods — but specific advice needs to come from a doctor.

      Get thee to a doctor, and let me know how it goes!

      Hi Vanita,

      You need to talk to your doctor about why your period is so irregular. Only a doctor can give you the physical examination you need to figure out how to conceive a baby.

      I’m sorry I don’t have easy tips for you — but you need to talk to a doctor who can examine you in person.

      Blessings,
      Laurie

      hi , i am 25 .mine problem is skip of periods from 4 months ,but i m not pregnent .i m suffering from this problem from dec2009.i also facing problems to conceive a baby, plz help me out from this problem.

    240. Laurie Pawlik-Kienlen says:

      Hi Denise,

      I encourage you to go to a different doctor for a second opinion. You might also try a naturopathic doctor for supplements or tips on regulating your menstrual cycle.

      PCOS isn’t the only reason for irregular periods — you could have imbalanced hormones, ovarian cysts, or even endometriosis (though that’s often accompanied by pain). So, I think your doctor should be testing for more than PCOS.

      Don’t give up! Go to another doctor, and keep getting tested until you figure out the cause of your irregular periods. You can’t treat the problem until you know what’s causing it!

      Good luck,
      Laurie

    242. Laurie Pawlik-Kienlen says:

      Hi jyoti and preeti,

      I’m sorry to hear that your periods aren’t regular. I know how important it is to regulate your menstrual cycle, and how frustrating it is when you’re not regular!

      The best way to get regular periods is to talk to a doctor — and get examined. There may be something that is stopping you from menstruating regularly, and you need to figure out what that is! Maybe eating the right foods to balance your hormones would help, maybe not…it just depends on the cause of your irregular periods.

      Please go talk to the doctor. Then, come back and let me know what he or she says!

      Take care,
      Laurie

      Hi Aloe,

      Congratulations on your marriage!

      I’m sorry to hear you’re having trouble with your periods. I don’t know what the “best” cure is for polycystic ovaries, because different things work for different women. Here are some articles on PCOS treatments:

      An Effective Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Treatment – Acupuncture

      Yes, You Can Get Pregnant If You Have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

      How Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Affects Fertility

      If your doctor hasn’t found a solution in 4 to 6 months, I suggest getting a second opinion. You might also want to consider a naturopathic doctor or doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

      If you keep trying different things and stay positive, you will find a way to regulate your menstrual cycle! It just takes time to balance your hormones…but as soon as you do, you might find getting pregnant a whole lot easier.

      Blessings,
      Laurie

      hi laurie,

      i haven’t gotten my period for 3months that’s why ive decided to consult an OB.i was diagnosed w/ polycystic ovaries since feb this year..i took diane pills for 3 months as advised by my doctor..then i had my period for those months. after that, i was advised that we need to regulate my period before getting pregnant.. i was advised to take provera for 10 days from 16th day from the start of my period.. and i did..from that month of july, i had my period.. but come august, my period did show up again… until today.. i’ve noticed that my belly got bigger than before…i thought, i was pregnant so i took a pregnancy test but unfortunately, its negative…

      Hi Karen,

      I don’t know why your period isn’t regular. Have you talked to your family doctor, had a pap smear, and maybe been tested for the usual things that cause irregular periods?

      That’s the best way to get regular periods — see a doctor in person.

      Blessings,
      Laurie

      My perios has never been regular there’s been times that I last up to around 9 months with out getting it what’s the reason for this?

    249. Laurie Pawlik-Kienlen says:

      Hi Kiki,

      Have you talked to a gynecologist, or even or family doctor? The best way to get regular periods is to get physically checked out by a physican.

      I also suggest talking to a naturopathic doctor. Your hormones may be out of wack; naturopathic medicine is all about getting balance in the body, which will regulate your hormones and period.

      Sorry I can’t be more helpful!

      Laurie
