I would be happy to assist. Please let me know how long you have had irregular cycles? Do you have any other medical problems/take medications? Any excessive hair growth on your face, back, abdomen, or thighs? What is your height and weight? Thanks.

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I do not have irregular period at all. I am on zoloft and risperdal. I am 5 feet height and weight 95 lbs.

Thank you for the additional information. It may be that the Risperdal is causing your irregular periods. This type of medication can cause an increase in the amout of prolactin in your body which prevents your period from occurring. I recommend asking your doctor to check your prolactin levels to confirm. This is a common side effect of the drug. I hope this helps. Feel free to ask additional questions if necessary. Best wishes.
