Brief Answer: FOLLOW THE GUIDLINE. DETAILS ARE BELOW. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us on XXXXXXX According to given information, your wife's monthly period cycle is quite irregular and it may occur due to mental stress or emotional upset, hormonal imbalance, Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease, over weight or rapid loss, pelvic infection, anemia, irregular diet habit etc. Here, I suggest to undergo relevant investigations like pelvic ultrasound scan, hormone test, thyroid profile, LH/FSH, blood Hb% etc to pinpoint the diagnosis and rule out underling pathology if any. You can consult with GYNECOLOGIST for proper guidance and complete prescription. For successful conception, both of you need to follow these suggestions: 1) First, she needs a regular cycle with proper ovulation. Progesterone pill (D16 to D25) and other supportive treatment may be required in this case to regularize her monthly cycle. 2) For proper ovulation, she may need to take ovulation induction drugs like Clomiphene from D2 of her cycle. Serial follicular study (D12 to D16) is useful to monitor her ovulation or she can use ovulation prediction kit (LH kit) to track down ovulation time in the middle of each cycle. 3) You have to do regular unprotected sex close to her ovulation day (14 days prior to next due date) or (11th to 19th days of each regular 28 to 30 days cycle) to maximize the chance of pregnancy. 4) Both of you must take a healthy balanced diet with more fresh fruits and vegetables. Low carbohydrate diet is preferable. Take vitamin-E and folic acid supplements for 3 months in preconception period and there after. 5) Do light to moderate exercise for physical fitness and to reduce or control body weight. Avoid mental stress completely by regular meditation/ yoga. Maintain a healthy life style. You would continue prescribed medications. Hope, above information is quite helpful to you. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query. Wish your good health and take care yourself. Regards, Dr Soumen For future query, you can directly approach me through WWW.WWWW.WW
