Irregular Menstrual Cycles

Irregular menstrual cycles can be caused by hormonal imbalances and can affect a woman’s fertility. If menstrual cycles are irregular, the chances of ovulation are lower as the ovaries are releasing eggs less frequently than normal.

What can I do about my irregular menstrual cycle?

Having irregular periods indicates that ovulation may not be happening which makes it a challenge to plan a pregnancy.  Although in most cases irregular menstrual cycles are treatable, it is important to be evaluated for other conditions that could interfere with ovulation, such as thyroid conditions or abnormalities of the adrenal or pituitary glands.
