Thanks for your query, Treatments for irregular periods due to other causes may include:

Correcting or treating underlying disease
Changing your type of birth control
Lifestyle changes
Hormone therapy
Here are some treatment options:

Treating underlying disease. It is important to treat any underlying diseases that cause irregular periods. If you have irregular periods, your doctor will run blood tests to check hormone levels and thyroid function.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) are two common causes of irregular periods in women. Treatment of these disorders can be complex and varies from woman to woman. In general, the goal of treatment is to restore the balance of hormones in the body. Women with PCOS may be given birth control pills or other hormones to trigger a period.

Hyperthyroidism is treated with:

Medicines that reduce the amount of thyroid hormone made by the body.
Radioactive iodine.
Surgery, sometimes. Regards, Dr.Sharmila
