If a woman is having an irregular menstrual period but following the rythym/calendar method. Does she have a chance to get pregnant as soon as possible or she still needs to wait or take prescriptions to get her period back to normal again before she can get pregnant?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
You can get pregnant even if your cycles are irregular provided you are having the egg release from the ovary (ovulation).
Ovulation can be monitored by following the basal body temperature (taking the body temperature readings every morning), the day it starts rising, it would suggest that you are ovulating. Start having intercourse during this time for next 5-7 days for a fruitful result.
For more details discuss with your healthcare provider/gynecologist. Make sure you get a detailed evaluation done to rule out any serious causes for having the irregular periods (PCOS, endometriosis, ovarian cysts).
All the best.
