Yes: Even with irregular periods it is possible to get pregnant any time you have unprotected intercourse. Your periods are probably irregular because your ovulation is irregular. Several contraceptive methods can also help to regulate your periods. If you aren't ready for a baby, now is the time to look into them. Hope this helps.
