Hi,welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
First of all, why you have done your urine examination? What was your problems? You did not tell us that.
Secondly, epithelial cells may increase in number in many conditions like infection of kidney,drugs like salicylates , heavy metal and also in normal condition, in some individual.
Irregular cycle does not have any relation with this urine test.
Without knowing your total clinical profile it is impossible to give any advice. Thats all.
