For some women, an irregular menstrual cycle has been part of their health history. But, some women notice changes in their menstrual after having a baby, stopping birth control pills, or experiencing a significant amount of stress in their lives.

Case Study: Marybeth, Age 34, Irregular Menstrual for Over One Year
Marybeth contacted us for help because she wanted to get pregnant. She and her partner tried for over a year and they did not conceive, yet. One of the most frustrating things was when she stopped taking birth control pills, her cycles ranged from 23-44 days. She felt it was impossible to track ovulation and kept missing the golden window.
Regularly, we advocate to have sex every other day for the two or more weeks in the middle of your cycle. But, Marybeth’s husband worked out of town, so, they needed to know exactly when she ovulated so they could get into a schedule.
In addition to her irregular cycle and not knowing her ovulation time, she also experienced bad mood swings, cramps with her period, and debilitating headaches. Sometimes, she also had loose stool and fatigue with her cycle.
This type of irregular menstrual is pretty common with women who come off of the birth control pill. Women are told not to worry that their cycle will just regulate naturally. But, the truth is, it takes a lot longer to regulate a menstrual cycle if you aren’t doing anything except waiting. Plus, this wait is saying that something is not correct with your hormones. Something needs to be done.
With Marybeth, we tracked her cycle with BBT and symptoms daily for three cycles. Based on her experience before working with us, we recommended specific supplements, nutrients, and herbal medicine to support her hormones. Within 1 ½ months of the herb protocol, she noticed a decrease in moods and more energy. She also was able to feel less cramping and her cycle was more manageable. By the end of her third month with herbs and recommended acupressure points, her cycle was back to normal for her. And, her ovulation happened on day 15 or 16 each month. That was our first step to help Marybeth. We are happy to report that she was pregnant within two months of regulating her menstrual cycle.
