If you are due to have a period on your wedding day, your doctor would like at least 2 months heads up! ...Read more

What can I do if my menstrual cycle has changed from 32 days to about 40 days. Is this normal?

Since menses represents prior ovulation, fewer ovulations can decrease fertility. As long as your periods act pretty much the same each time and there is no bleeding between and the menses are not heavier, i would not worry about it. ...Read more

Depends: It depends on what you mean by 'regulate'. A diet rich in iron can help to replenish the iron stores that are lost when you menstruate if your bleeding is heavy. If you are having specific problems with your cycle (missing periods or too frequent) there can be dietary changes that can help. Most significantly, if you are heavy, weight loss and being at healthy bmi can help regulate periods. ...Read more
