Thank you for your query.

The reason your periods are irregular is because you may not be ovulating. This is called anovulation. Read more at WWW.WWWW.WW
This maybe because you have PCOD (polycystic ovarian disease). You can read more about this at WWW.WWWW.WW
You need the following medical tests to know about the cause and its treatment.
1. Blood tests for you include the following reproductive hormones - FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone), LH (luteinising hormone), PRL (prolactin), AMH (anti-Mullerian hormone) and TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) on Day 3 of your cycle. These tests are to check the quality of your eggs. Do this from a reliable lab such as SRL (;
2. A vaginal ultrasound scans which should check for the following.
a. ovarian volume
b. antral follicle count
c. uterus morphology
d. endometrial thickness and texture

Please send me the detailed test results and medical reports. You can scan them in as a single word file and email them to me.

Once we know what the problem is, then we can treat it!

Your chances of conceiving with the right treatment are excellent, because you are young.
We look forward to helping you to have a baby!
