  1. What is an irregular period?

If someone’s menstrual cycle is shorter than 24 days, more than 38 days long, or if the length varies significantly from month-to-month, they are said to have irregular periods.

  1. Why are my periods irregular?

Irregular periods, can be caused by a variety of factors. Many of them have something to do with hormone levels. The primary hormones that regulate the menstrual cycle are oestrogen, progesterone, leuteinising hormone, and follicle-stimulating hormone. It can cause irregular periods if anything disturbs or changes the way these hormones rise and decrease during each cycle. Periods that are irregular on occasion are frequent and normally do not cause worry. Factors like natural hormonal shifts, hormonal birth control, stress, endurance exercise, weight loss may also lead to irregular periods.
