There are several reasons of irregular period like hormonal imbalance, stress/anxiety, ovarian cyst, thyroid problem, wt gain/ extreme loss, irregular eating habits etc.

Need to investigate properly to rule out underlying pathology by USG lower abdomen & complete hormone assay etc.So consult with your doctor and take suggestive measures.

Abdominal cramp during period (dysmenorrhoea) is quite common in young age group. Do the following things:

Avoid salty food/ coffee in 2nd half of period, Avoid stress by yoga/deep breathing, Control body wt, Take healthy diet, drink more water/ juice with fresh fruits & vegetables, keep bowel habit regular, maintain personal hygiene and need proper sleep. Medication like mefenamic acid or drotaverine is quite helpful to reduce cramp.

Be well & take care.
