Fed up with irregular periods - is there anything I can do?

Hello everyone.

Does anyone have any advice about making periods more regular? Have you tried things like acupuncture/ chinese medicine? Did it work?

I'm hoping to start IUI in December, but I haven't been able to have my pre-treatment hormone tests yet as they need to be done at the beginning of a cycle - and I'm currently on day 86! My last period was in august and I'm still waiting (and definitely not pregnant, unfortunately).

My periods are irregular, but this year worse than ever - looking back in my diary, I realised that I've only had 4 periods so far this year.

Is there anything at all I can do?

I hope someone has some advice.

Hiya

Some people say that acupuncture helps regulate their cycles. If starting your tx is dependent on these tests can you not ask for something to bring on your period ?

Hello, my last AF was 90 days so I know how you feel.

I'm sorry though I can't offer any advice :sadface:

RE: Fed up with irregular periods - is there anything I can do?

I was advised to take metformin to regulate my periods. I am averaging around 40 day cycles now, but that can vary. Metformin is also used for diabetic patients.

I am due to start ICSI anytime.

Good luck.
