Have you talked to your doctor about why you are irregular?  That is the best place to start.  Some women start birth control pills for a short duration to kick start things which sounds counterintuitive when trying to conceive. But it's a process to regulate your system and get pregnant so you have to look at it as a long term project rather than something that will happen right away.  Being irregular definitely complicates it.  In my 20's, I was very irregular and it was due to a hormone imbalance in which I was naturally producing too much estrogen AND a slow functioning thyroid  For me, it righted itself in a year and a half.  I did no medical intervention as we were trying to figure out what to do and I was scheduled to see an endocrinologist ---  and it was a long wait.  While waiting, my system evened out.  But I was working with my doctor the entire time. so, my suggestion is to discuss this with your doctor.  good luck and let me know what you think of this.
Thank you ! & I have talked to my doctor and all she seems to tell me is that its because of my weight since I've gained weight but I'll have to keep talking to her about it  thank you so much
