How It Works

About Irregular Periods

Once a girl reaches the end of puberty, her menstrual cycle will begin. It’s common for menstrual cycles to be irregular the first few years, but after some time, the body should adjust to a fairly consistent schedule. But this isn’t always the case for some women. Certain issues can cause a period to become irregular, ranging from being significantly overweight or underweight to having certain medical conditions.

PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) in particular is a condition characterized by irregular periods. Irregular periods are different from woman to woman. Our team of specialized PCOS Sisters and nurse practitioners help women have a regular cycle and improve their health.

Symptoms of Irregular Periods

Irregular periods are different from woman to woman. For some, having irregular periods could mean that they bleed too much, too little, or even not at all. Some women will skip a period several months in a row while others may not have a period for over a year or more. The important thing to note with irregular periods is if you notice an obvious change in your cycle, such as:

Irregular Periods FAQ

There are many factors that can lead a person's period to be irregular or disappear altogether. These include body weight, irregular hormones, certain medications or diseases, and stress. If PCOS is the cause of menstrual irregularity, it is usually due to excess production of androgens and underproduction of progesterone, which is a hormone produced by the ovaries that contribute to menstrual cycles and ovulation.
If your irregular periods are caused by PCOS, addressing the condition itself and taking the right medications should ensure that you menstruate on a regular, consistent schedule. To find out the cause of your irregular periods, your PCOS Specialist Nurse Practitioner will meet with you personally and evaluate your overall health and symptoms.
