Dear Anita

What is your age and what are your primary concerns about having this irregularity in cycles? How long has it been like this ? Are you married and have children ? The medication you are taking is an ayurvedic prepration which may or may not help. One is not sure of the composition of these ayurvedic preprations as they may contain undesirable heavy metals dont take them for too long .

Answer my questions and might be able to guide you online.

Hormonal imbalance which could be for different reasons depending on the age of the patient. Commonest being Polycystic Ovarian Disease amongst the young. Physiologically in perimenopausal women and around menarche. And yes the mental stress also affects the hormonal balance in our body and hence cause irregular periods. having said this , these arent the only reasons of irregular periods but commonest.
