Persistent or long-term irregularity may increase the risk of developing other disorders, such as: 

Infertility: Anovulation, or when the body fails to release an egg, can cause irregular periods. This might indicate that a woman is having trouble conceiving. 

Iron deficiency anaemia: It is caused by a lack of iron in the blood. A person's blood loss may be sufficient to produce an iron shortage if their periods are heavy or frequent. 

Osteoporosis: Ovulation is a source of oestrogen, which aids in bone health. Due to a lack of oestrogen, a person who does not ovulate frequently may be at a higher risk for osteoporosis. 

Cardiovascular disease: Oestrogen deficiency can also increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. 

Endometrial hyperplasia: If one has irregular periods for a long time without therapy, they may develop endometrial hyperplasia, a condition in which the uterine lining thickens abnormally. Endometrial cancer is more likely a result of this.
