Irregular periods and ovulation

User Profile
My periods are very irregular. I always have it for every two months. Very rarely i had it within 28 - 35 days. From past one year i had only 7 period cycles. In my periods, with the regular blood flow i am finding some meat coming along with it. Sometimes yellow fluid also come along with blood flow.I will have periods for only 3 days and it stops for the 4th day.Even after periods i will be having some white and yellow discharge everyday. I am getting a fear that i might have problem in concieving in future because of this. I have not discussed my problem with others or consulted any doctor. I am getting married in few months and i may plan to concieve. I wanted to know whether it is normal to have meat pieces flowing in periods?Is there any problem in my reproductive system as it has long gap between periods and has this white and yellow discharge regularly? Please suggest me to do something to overcome this fear. Please suggest me further course of action to regularise my periods

Irregular periods usually indicates that there are no ovulations (egg cell-expel) and without ovulation conception is impossible. You should check your progesterone level in the second half of the cycle. If there is no progesterone in the second half of the cycle that means that you don’t have ovulations. Those “meat”-pieces in the menstrual blood are probably parts of the rubbed endometrium and they don’t indicate anything important. White-yellow discharge could indicate the presence of a vaginal infection so you should check that too.


You may want to consult a gynecologist about this.
