What can I do to bring my period?

Irregular periods are very common among young women. This is an indication of an imbalance in the monthly cycles. The reasons of this irregularity in the menstrual cycle are many. Women with irregular periods are not able to keep a track of their menstrual cycles. This is especially bothersome when they are trying to have a baby. Without the knowledge of the menstrual and ovulation cycle, trying for a baby becomes difficult. Ideally, a menstrual cycle occurs every 28 days. However, sometimes, a single cycle can take anywhere from 23 to 35 days. If your period is regular, you are able to anticipate the next cycle and prepare yourself accordingly.

Minor irregularities in the menstrual cycle are very common. If the periods are a couple of days late, or a couple of days early, it is not really a cause of concern. However, if your periods are late by several weeks or if you skip them altogether, it could be a cause of concern. Similarly having several cycles in a short span or having periods that are too frequent is also not healthy. There might be reason to call for a further investigation. Problems such as polycystic ovary syndrome can cause the periods to become irregular. To have regular periods, your diet may need to be scrutinized. There are certain food materials that help in regularizing the menstrual cycle. These foods also help maintain the health of the uterus and the rest of the reproductive system.

Here are some of the things that you should include in your diet.
  • Vitamin B. Vitamin B can help you cope with the every day stresses in life. All the vitamins of the vitamin B family are important in regulation of several hormones. For example, vitamins B2, B3, and B6 are important in regulating the functioning of the thyroid gland. Vitamin B5 helps in maintaining the adrenal gland. Impairment of either of these glands can cause the periods to become irregular. Green leafy vegetables are good source of these vitamins; however, these can also be taken in the form of multivitamin capsules.
  • Antioxidants. Antioxidants counter the free radicals and prevent mutation of the cells. There are disorders like endometrial hyperplasia in which the lining of the womb begins to thicken, and it starts to spread in the body. vitamins A, E, and C can help prevent this expansion of endometrial layer by containing the mutation of the cells.
