In brief: Hard

Is the menstrual irregularity tied to the fatigue? Menses can get irregular with weight gain, stress or simply notovulating for a month.
I assume u are not pregnant. Thyroid issues can cause both problem, hardly ever find it. Are u sleeping well? Gained weight? Crying spells? Feel deeply flawed? Fatigue can be a mood sx. I may be wrong, but fatigue likely not related to period outside pregna.
