I am sorry you are having irregular periods.

what are you eating?

some women do better cutting out gluten, white flour, pasta bread and milk and sugar and soda out of their diet as these can be inflammatory and cause hormone imbalances.

eating more organic meats and eggs can help your hormones as well

what is your height and weight?

I do eat a ton of bread pasta and sugar because I don’t drink soda I drink A lot of juice and water. My eating habits are really bad some days I go without eating at all but most days I have at least two meals a protein vegetable and a starch and I’m 5”7 and 160 pounds
OB GYN Doctor: Dr David, Doctor replied 2 months ago

juice is a lot of sugar and no fiber

I would rather you eat the whole fruit and cut out juices completely

I bet cutting out gluten, white flour, sugars and eating more protein and fruits and vegetables and eating more regular meals

and eating more organic meats and eggs can help you get your periods back more to normal

and increase your chances for pregnancy

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
