In brief: Birth control
If your periods are irregular, oral contraceptive pills may help to give you more regular cycles.
Irregular periods are caused by not ovulating at regular intervals. This may make natural family planning impossible. And make it more difficult to know whether you are pregnant or not.

In brief: Yes
As long as you were evaluated, and no problems found, the birth control pills after a few months shouls actually regulate your periods.
As long as you take the pill correctly they should be effective.
