Medic for Irregular Periods

1 of 3

An irregular period, medically known as oligomenorrhea, is a common problem among women. It usually refers to infrequent periods with intervals of more than 35 days.

A normal menstrual cycle ranges from 21 to 35 days. Menstrual bleeding generally lasts for two to seven days. Women normally have 11 to 13 periods in a year, but those with oligomenorrhea may have fewer than six or seven periods.

Irregular periods are characterized by variations in the time between each of your periods, the number of days that your periods last, and abnormal blood loss (whether less or more than usual) during a period.


A number of factors can cause this problem, such as eating disorders, significant weight loss or gain, anemia, menopause, thyroid disorders, hormonal imbalance, liver disease, tuberculosis, irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes, recent birth or miscarriage, polycystic ovarian syndrome, uterine abnormalities, and other health conditions.

Lifestyle triggers like increased exercise, smoking, alcohol abuse, caffeine, travel, stress, and certain medications and birth control pills can also contribute to this problem. Furthermore, a 2005 European study indicates that asthma and hay fever may also be linked to irregular periods.

Menstrual cycles tend to be irregular during the first few years after menstruation starts and also at the end of a woman’s menstrual years, when she is approaching menopause.

In addition, as different women are likely to have different menstrual patterns, slight irregularities once in a while should not be a cause for concern.


home remedies for irregular periods

Here are the top 10 home remedies for irregular periods.

1. Ginger

Ginger is highly beneficial in regulating menstrual cycles and also relieving menstrual pain. It promotes menstruation and hence is good when dealing with delayed or scanty periods.

  1. Boil one-half teaspoon of freshly ground ginger in a cup of water for five to seven minutes.
  2. Add a little sugar.
  3. Drink this three times a day after meals.
  4. Do this for about one month or more.

2. Cinnamon

Cinnamon is considered useful for regulating menstrual cycles and reducing menstrual cramps. According to traditional Chinese medicine, it is believed to have a warming effect on the body.

Also, it contains hydroxychalcone that helps regulate insulin levels and is suspected to have an effect on menstrual regularity. A study analyzing the effects of cinnamon extract on menstrual cycles in women with polycystic ovary syndrome is currently underway.

  • Simply add one-half teaspoon of cinnamon powder to a glass of milk. Drink this daily for several weeks.
  • You can also drink cinnamon tea, sprinkle cinnamon on your foods, or chew cinnamon sticks regularly.

3. Sesame Seeds and Jaggery

Sesame seeds are useful in regulating menstrual cycles as they help balance your hormones. They are loaded with lignans that help bind excess hormones. Plus, they contain essential fatty acids that promote optimal hormone production. Jaggery, too, helps regulate menstrual cycles due to its warming effects.

  1. Dry roast a handful of sesame seeds.
  2. Grind them along with one teaspoon of jaggery into a fine powder.
  3. Take one teaspoon of this powder daily on an empty stomach in the luteal phase, or second half of your menstrual cycle (two weeks before your period starts), for a few months.

Simply eating a piece of jaggery, also known as gur, will also help regulate menstruation.

Note: Do not use this remedy during your periods.

4. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera helps treat menstrual irregularities naturally by regulating your hormones.

  1. Extract fresh aloe vera gel from an aloe leaf.
  2. Mix in one teaspoon of honey.
  3. Consume it daily before having your breakfast.
  4. Follow this remedy for about three months.

Note: Do not use this remedy during your periods.

5. Unripe Papaya

Green, unripe papaya works as a potent emmenagogue. It is considered useful in regulating menstrual flow as it helps contract muscle fibers in the uterus.

It is particularly useful for irregular periods associated with menopause and stress. Consume unripe papaya juice regularly for a few months. Do not drink it during your periods.

6. Turmeric

Being a warming herb, turmeric is also considered helpful in regulating menstruation and balancing hormones. Its emmenagogue properties help stimulate menstrual flow. Moreover, its antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties relieve menstrual pain.

  • Consume one-quarter teaspoon of turmeric with milk, honey or jaggery. Take it daily for several weeks or until you see improvement.
  • You can also take turmeric in supplement form; consult your doctor for proper dosage.

  3. I’m 18 years old now. My first menstruation was when I was 10. I had regular mens until 14 but 15-18 years old, it became irregular. I had no idea why it happened like I only had mens less that 6x a year. I went to the nearest clinic and had a check up. My OBGYNE told me that I should undergo that “internal check up” thingy so she’ll know what’s wrong with my repro. organs and could help me with that but I’m really scared so she just gave me a medicine that I should take once a day for 3 days and wait for 5 days after taking it for my mens to come out. Yes it’s helpful but it’s still not normal ’cause I only had mens if I take that medicine. The thing is I really want my mens back to normal like how it should be.

  6. Hi! I’m turning 27 yrs old next yr. I’m really so scared right now because it’s been almost 7months ago since I have my last period. I don’t know why. This is the first time that I’m having this kind of irregularities in my period. My problem is, I’m so scared to go to the doctor. I’m 3yrs married. I never tried any contraceptives. At first, when I noticed that I was delayed, I bought a pregnancy test to know if I’m pregnant. But the result is negative. I was so disappointed. That’s why I’d take and tried any kind of herbal medicines. Now I’m praying that your tips will work.
    As I was reading some of your home remedies, I was relieved. Hoping that it can help a lot for me. Anyways, thanks for sharing this kind of info!!! It gives us hope, somehow! Godbless!
