Hi doctor,

I am having irregular periods. My cycle is usually on the 10th of every month, but I had heavy spotting on the 19th of last month. Then, I had my normal periods on the 10th of this month. But, I had my periods today, which is 10 days earlier than the normal cycle. During mid of last month, I had some Iron tablets for around three to four days. Please help me with this irregular period issue. Thank you

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com

I have gone through your query and can understand your health concern.

  • If you are having irregular periods for the first time, then no need to worry. Just wait for the next cycle.
  • If it still persists, then you need to take pills for that. Try to avoid stressful conditions.
  • I suggest you take healthy food with more fruits. Add dates, apples, Manuka honey, jaggery and spinach more in the diet. These contain more iron.
  • You can take tablet M2 tone twice daily for a month. It helps in regularizing menstrual cycle.
