Maybe: Not an easy answer w/o additional information. Depends on your age, cause of the irregular cycles, other medications, etc.

Irregular Periods: Although supplements and herbal medications have a labeling stating that it is not intended to cure, treat or diagnose a disease, yes, there are multiple alternatives to surgery and traditional medicine to your problem. Causes could be multiple including a hormonal imbalance including thyroid and ovarian conditions, excessive weight gain, fibroids, endometriosis...Etc....

first is to answer WHY you have irregular periods. Once you know the reason there are alternative medicine options but difficult to help without knowing diagnosis for irregularity.

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.

Not your periods: Both menses sound normal being moody is likely related to other circumstances (husband, kids, job, money ?).

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.

When spotting very little, is it considered a menstral cycle?

Hypomenorrhea: Very light menstrual flow can be normal. Having regular cycles that aren't too heavy or painful is more important than concern about enough flow. A sudden change in menstrual flow can signal a problem, like a hormonal change or pregnancy.
