Share

 

After you’ve made the beautiful decision to bring another life into this universe, the next step is to start preparing yourself for pregnancy. When you have irregular cycles, you already would have asked yourself this question, even before considering a pregnancy - “Will I be able to get pregnant, with my irregular cycles?”  

 

Getting Pregnant with Irregular Cycles -  Is it Possible? 

 

The short answer is - yes. The key is to understand the causes of your irregular periods - with this knowledge, you can try to restore your cycle regularity, to help you take off on this adventure called pregnancy. 

 

What are irregular periods? 

Irregular periods - something that affects 1 in 3 women these days. As the name suggests, irregular periods are menstrual cycles that are shorter, consistently than 21 days or longer, again consistently than 36 days. Your periods can also be termed as “irregular” if the length of your cycle keeps varying as well. 

 

Causes of Irregular Cycles:

 

The most common cause of irregular cycles or hormonal imbalances, which cause irregular cycles is PCOS or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. There are other prevalent causes as well, such as in women with eating disorders, or women who exercise too much. There could be a lack of nutrition as well, which makes it very difficult for the brain to properly trigger the hormones needed, too. 

 

When can you get pregnant?  

 

In most cases, there are about 6 days during your cycle when you are likely to conceive - as you already know by now, the key to knowing when you can get pregnant is to the knowledge of when you ovulate. When you try to figure out the exact date of ovulation, it’s not easy because it doesn’t happen at the same time each month.

 

For you to have this knowledge is very important when you are trying to conceive. The time when an egg can be fertilized by sperm, also commonly known as the ovulation window, is quite short - varying from 12 to 14 hours,. This is why identifying when you are going to ovulate is imperative for you to go ahead and plan your conception around it. 

 

But don’t worry, with modern-day technology and devices like fertility monitors, it is quite easy to find out your most fertile days. 

 

Tracking your fertile days with irregular cycles:

 

If you’re one of the three women who have irregular cycles, don’t worry,  With the help of modern-day fertility monitors, not only do you get significantly more accurate results, than the others, you also have the added advantage of doing everything from the comfort of your own home, without the added stress.

 

Do keep in mind though, that irregular periods could be symptoms of underlying medical problems like diabetes or thyroid, so it is better to consult a doctor to rule these out before trying to conceive.
