Hello and welcome to HCM,
Irregular periods are most commonly due to hormonal disorders.
Infections like acute salpingitis can affect the fertility so it should be treated with appropriate antibiotics.
In irregular menstrual cycles, it is difficult to determine the period of ovulation and thus conception time.
However, if you are having difficulty in conception, you can consult a gynecologist for follicular scan to determine the period of ovulation and thus best time for conception.

Thanks and take care
