Speak to her doctor.: Depending on your daughter's age & how irregular it is, this can be very normal and there may be no treatment necessary, as it will resolve on its own. This is certainly the case in the first 2 years or so of menstruating.If she is older, she may want to discuss this with her doctor or see a gynecologist to consider going on a birth controll pill, which will hormonally regulate her periods.

Chances are good: At age 29, your chances for getting pregnant are good. If you have irregular periods, this can make it more difficult since you may ovulate less frequently. This will mean fewer opportunities to get pregnant. If you're not successful getting pregnant in about 6-12 months, see your doctor.

Normal!: It is not uncommon in some children. If the stool is formed , child is growing i would not worry about it. It is often from green leafy vegetables, coloring agents in the food or simply due to rapid transit from small intestine to large intestine where it normally is tuned brown.

I've been trying to get pregnant for a while so what's the best way to get pregnant with an irregular period?

Pregnancy: I you have an irregular period it means you ovulate irregularly. You should keep a menstrual calendar writing when you start period and when you have sex. You can also buy an ovulation kit at the pharmacy, this will let you know when you ovulate so you can plan to have sex at that time. If you still can't get pregnant you should see a doctor and bring your menstrual calendar with you.
