Irregular Periods And Fertility

by Sarah Williams

How to prevent irregular periods?


Each woman experiences irregular periods. In some cases, when stress levels are high, the menstrual cycles become irregular due to delayed ovulation. You may notice that if you are stressed, your periods come late.

The length of menstrual cycle varies from every woman. The usual menstrual cycle is 28 days long, but anywhere from 21 to 35 days is still considered normal length.

What make a period irregular are the changes from month to month. If your periods are always 35 days long, that’s normal for you. But if they are 35 this month, 21 the next you have irregular periods.

Also, if the duration and characteristics of the flow change from month to month, you may have irregular periods. The usual duration of period is 5 days with normal flow of bright red blood.

If your periods are heavy and long or short and scanty or clotted you may suffer from certain hormonal disorders, PCOS, endometriosis, fibroids, etc.

Talk to your doctor and ask to be tested for hormonal disorders or other conditions that may cause irregular periods.

Your periods may become irregular due to many causes that are not a health problem.

For example:

1. Excessive weight increase or weight loss.

2. Poor diet and lack of specific vitamin like folate, B12, B6.

3. Prescription medication.

4. Hormonal chances due to pregnancy or perimenopause.

5. Polycystic ovaries.

6. Stress, anxiety or depression
7. Excessive physical activity.

8. Toxicity caused by smoking and alcohol.

9. Xenoestrogens present in your personal care products like parabens.

10. Hormones and pesticides in your food.

If your doctor tells you that it is nothing to be concerned, the best solution is to take fertility vitamins containing anti-oxidants, minerals and herbal remedies like vitex agnus castus.

I would recommend FertilAid products.

With a fertility herbal formula that includes vitex, red clover, siberian ginseng, and gingko biloba, FertilAid helps restore hormonal balance while supporting overall reproductive wellness and regular cycles in women who are trying to conceive.

Fertility Blessings!
