It is important to identify pregnancy
early so that you can discuss the options available to you and start prenatal care
. Early prenatal care helps ensure a healthy baby. If the irregularity is due to stress
then your periods should return when the activities or situations that are stressing you are eliminated or changed. As part of normal development, most girls' menstrual cycles become fairly regular as their hormone levels become mature and synchronized. A few women will continue to have irregular cycles as their normal pattern. Most often the doctor can treat a hormone imbalance
, once the cause is discovered.
