last few month she is suffering from irregular mestruation cycle
thids time she is down after 1 month 20 days

To me it looks like perimenopause.
what measure she should take here
One of hormones that regular period becomes low as one crosses 40 plus
leading to such disturbances.
It ends with cessation of cycles.
it is a common age related event.
however if she is bleeding for more than 2 weeks, she can see a doctor who can prescribe her medicines to stop bleeding.
in other words, this is normal physiological process.
Treatment will be needed if bleeding is heavy and persistent.
Is there any other question?
no but can i speak to a gyny?
Gynecologist are not available on live chat and call request.
But you can discuss with them through Ask A Doctor/specialist.

Doctor perform serum FSH levels before ordering ultrasound scan.
In this context you can wait for a couple of days more. If she continues to bleed, see a gynecologist.
The doctor will order both these tests to confirm perimenopause.
just now she confirmed me that she is bleeding since 19 days
In that case, start her on this iron supplement. You can visit a gynecologist to start treatment to stop bleeds.
