Talk with a doctor: Irregular periods mean you don't ovulate reliably or regularly; if you have spontaneous periods you are ovulating sometimes. Any doctor who works with reproductive age women should be able to help you sort your cycles out better!

Talk to a doctor: A doctor can evaluate you for low thyroid function and can talk to you about several other causes of irregular or heavy periods. Some of the treatments are hormonal. Birth control pills are a common treatment, but there are other options that preserve fertility (allow you to get pregnant.). And you may need to be evaluated for pcos (polycystic ovary syndrome), a common cause of irregular periods.

No: Usually you should allow atleast 3-4 months of treatment. If after this time you still have same problems then you can try to switch the pills.

Regular periods: Birth control pills can certainly regulate your periods making them very orderly indeed. If you are trying to conceive, I would bring that up with your gynecologist or primary care doctor.
