There are several possible causes for irregular menstruation — these include stress, prescription drugs, strenuous exercise, eating disorders such as bulimia and anorexia, and an excess of alcohol, tobacco, or caffeine. It is normal in most women for the menstrual cycle to vary to some extent, however, severe variations, such as unusually long or short periods, or unusually heavy or light flow, may be indications of a medical condition.

You have not mentioned the type and extent of irregularity you are experiencing. If the irregularity is severe, it will be best for you to visit your gynaecologist. Due to the large number and variety of possibilities, suggesting a herbal remedy is impossible.

In any case, if you have mildly irregular menses and are trying to conceive, you can take some general precautions to eliminate some of the common causes mentioned above. Obesity (20% over the ideal weight) and low weight (10-15% under the ideal weight) are also known to have a strong association with irregularity in menses and infertility. A BMI (body mass index) of 25-30 is considered overweight and a BMI of over 30 is considered obese. You should check your weight and BMI, and follow an appropriate exercise program based on your requirement to increase the chances of pregnancy and regularize your menses.
