My period is very irregular. In March it came on the 16th, In April it came on the 18th, In May it came on the 11th, and in June{which is now} it came on the 9th. Why are the days changing every month, and what can I do to make them regular?

You really don't sound very irregular to me. In fact, you're more regular than a lot of people. Very few women get their period every 28 days like clockwork. For most women, it's a little different every month. They might get it after 26 days one month, and after 32 the next month. I am pretty regular, but it's not like I can sit here and say "In December my period will come on the 12th." It just does not work like that. It is more like a rough estimate.

yeah, you don't sound particularly irregular to me either. the only way to make your periods completely regular and predictable is using birth control pills. on the pill, i pretty much almost know what hour my period will come, nevermind what day! some doctors would suggest going on birth control pills to regulate periods, but in your case i would say it would be unneccessary. you sound normal.

Your period sounds very normal to me. My period on the other hand comes twice a month sometimes or is two weeks late. If its an issue that really bothers you then i say get birth control. I heard that it helps with irregular periods. But im sure your not irregular at all.
