Women with irregular periods often visit their Houston OBGYN with a serious question: how can I get rid of irregular periods once and for all? Many go hoping for a satisfactory answer while many believe that there is no way to completely eliminate their irregular cycle. Women of childbearing age have even more concerns if they are trying to conceive a baby or want to start a family in the near future.
Fortunately, there are some ways to get the cycle more regular for some women. The easiest method is to use birth control pills which can control the amount of estrogen in the body to normalize the menstrual cycle. Some women will stop having periods altogether when on birth control, which is better for many than suffering through irregular periods.
Hormone therapies can also be used to help bring irregular periods under control. Not all women like the idea of using hormones, but it is a legitimate way that irregular periods can be normalized.
If you typically have regular periods and they suddenly stop, slow down, or you start skipping months, it is best to discuss the problem with your OBGYN right away. There may be a medical cause that can be treated to return your periods to regularity.
