  • I was always irregular before I got on birth control. I am still on it, but my cycle is like clockwork now. I know that you're saying you are trying to get pregnant, but maybe going on birth control for a few months and then getting off of it will help straighten out your cycle. I've heard of doctors doing this before. If you don't want to do that...then maybe go and get one of those fertility monitors to better be able to tell when you're ovulating. That's all I've got. Good luck!

  • If you aren't sure when you're ovulating have sex every day or whenever you can. Your husband will probably be happy about it. It worked for me and I have irregular periods. I wasn't trying though. LOL

  • You can buy ovulation prediction kits from the pharmacy.   You can also predict  ovulation by charting your body temperature.

  • If your trying to conceive DON'T get on birth control! It will make your periods irregular when u stop taking them!! I took bcp for 3 years and stopped in September and my periods were soo crazy! Yes they were regular on bcp but not once I stopped my period was crazy!

  • Are you over or under weight? That can throw your hormones out of balance. here is a natural mixture that worked for me

    chaste tree berry, false unicorn root, blue cohosh and rue. All of these can be mixed together to make a tea which acts as a uterine tonic, 2 parts chaste tree berry to 2 parts false unicorn root, 1 part blue cohosh, 1 part rue. If you are unsure about making your own herbal remedy, consult a qualified herbalist who can advise you.

    The Tansy flower has also been used to bring on delayed periods and can be drunk three times daily until your period arrives.

    You may also want to get checked for posible cysts. they can cause irregular periods
