Eating papaya could cause menstrual irregularities in some people.
Welcome to Ask a Doctor service.
Could you please clarify what you mean by you "are not thinking of family planning now", do you mean you are not planning to have children for now, or do you mean, you are actually looking to get pregnant and not trying to prevent getting pregnant?
Once in a while it is quite normal to get periods irregularly as menstrual periods are controlled by hormones, changes in lifestyle, working environments, stressful situations can all mess up the normal hormonal levels in the body and this can lead to early or delayed menstruation.
Papaya and some other fruits do contain some amount of estrogens and progestins, and can cause menstrual irregularities when consumed in excess.
What you must do now depends on whether you are trying to become pregnant or whether you are actively trying to prevent pregnancy.
Please clarify that part so that I can guide you further.
