Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that I am not sure I entirely understand your question, BUT . . . If you have an irregular period, it is more difficult to conceive because it means that you are ovulating irregularly too.
Sometimes medications such as Clomid can help this problem.
If you are already pregnant, I would do an ultrasound to figure out your due date since that is also more difficult to figure out when periods are irregular.
Good luck!
Dr B

By the measurement of your baby is what my doctor told me. According to my period I'm 9 weeks, but doctor measured me at 7 weeks 4 days. Idk for sure, I'm still a lil confused myself.

When I had my daughter, my last cycle was about five or six months before I found out I was pregnant. Now I have this issue with  pregnancy symptoms all the time and am never really pregnant...why is that.
