I really want to start having children but don’t want to rely on birth control to regulate my cycle?

Hi, I’m 21 years old with extreme irregular periods. I really want to start having children but don’t want to rely on birth control to regulate my cycle. Are there any natural ways you recommend or is going back on the pill my only option. I’ve been off of any type of birth control for 2 years now before I was on the depo shot for 2 years. Please help

I recommend an ultrasound on your ovaries first, as Depo shot may have caused complications like ovarian cysts
Good Luck

it will take lots of time to regularise ur period naturally as it all depends on ur genetic and hormonal structure.
i suggest you to take pills to regularise the cycles.
this will help u to have children early.

Thanks for the query..

First of all you should consult a Gynaecologist and get a proper hormonal profile and transvaginal ultrasound done to rule out the exact cause of the irregular menstruation..
Treatment of the underlying cause will help in planning for getting pregnant.
Taking Oral Contraceptives can simply regulate your periods but will not helps in getting pregnant.
Therefore proper investigations and fertility treatment is a must..

Hope this information helps..

If you are looking for natural methods,I am sorry to say there is nothing safe 100% ,you can use condoms as a method but it does not guarantee of course to prevent conceiving ..
About the period regulation you can do exercise,yoga and meditation to help regulate them as irregular periods are sometimes due to nervousness and stress..
