Irregular periods, which can be worrisome and lead to other health conditions, can be caused due to poor dietary choices and hormonal fluctuations in the body. You can regularise your menstrual cycle with the help of certain foods by providing the nutrition your body needs. Here’s a list of 15 scientifically proven foods. 

  1. Cinnamon

Cinnamon stimulates the flow of blood in your pelvis and generates the required level of estrogen. It provides quick relief from menstrual pain and cramps. Mix cinnamon with milk and have it to get the best of it. 

  1.  Pineapple 

Pineapple is full of bromelain enzymes that soften the uterus and improve blood flow by generating red and white blood cells. It also reduces the chances of blood clots and swelling during periods.

  1.  Carom seeds

Carom seeds have antispasmodic qualities that work excellently to relieve menstrual irregularities. Moreover, they work impressively in stimulating the uterus. If you are suffering from irregular periods or menstrual pain, boil a glass of boiled water with carom seeds and sip it. 

  1.  Papaya

The high amount of carotene contained in papaya normalizes the cycle of menstruation. It also stimulates and regulates estrogen levels in the body and promotes the proper functioning of your uterus. 

However, remember to avoid papaya during pregnancy. 

  1. Ginger

Vitamin C and magnesium content in ginger make it great to get relief from irregular periods. If you add jaggery to your ginger tea, you can expect a better result for correcting irregular menstrual cycles. It even helps in the natural production of estrogen in the body. 

  1. Turmeric

Turmeric steers the smooth flow of blood to your uterus. It gives a kickstart to your periods and prevents inflammation during periods. You can regulate your periods naturally by adding turmeric and honey to warm milk. 

  1. Coffee

Caffeine in coffee is a natural remedy for irregular periods and abnormal menstrual pain. It regulates the estrogen level, improves the blood flow in your pelvic area, and restricts the narrowing of blood vessels during the period. 

  1. Apple Cider Vinegar & Honey 

Apple Cider Vinegar can help in balancing hormones in your body.  It can also reduce the symptoms of PCOS, which is one of the prime reasons for irregular periods. Have a mixture of honey and apple cider vinegar to get rid of menstrual irregularities.

  1.  Parsley

Parsley is a famous herb for the proper regulation of blood in the pelvic area. Also, the compounds like myristicin and apiole in parsley help in the proper production of estrogen. You can enjoy parsley tea or boiled parsley water to overcome menstrual irregularity. 

  1. Flaxseeds

Flaxseeds are rich in lignans (phytoestrogen), a naturally occurring form of plant-based oestrogen. Lignans may assist your body in eliminating extra androgens produced by the ovaries and balancing the level of female hormones, which could help your menstrual cycle become more regular.

  1. Aloe Vera 

It helps manage your hormones, thereby regulating your periods. For best results, mix one teaspoon of honey with fresh aloe vera gel and have it every day before your breakfast.

  1. Beetroot 

It regulates the hormonal balance in the body which naturally promotes regular menstruation. The high iron content of beetroot also boosts iron count in the blood which improves haemoglobin levels and has a positive effect on your menstrual cycle. 

  1. Dark Chocolate 

Dark chocolate (just 1-2 squares) is known to reduce the level of the stress hormone, cortisol and boost happy hormones like serotonin and endorphins. Since stress is a causative factor of period irregularities, dark chocolate which works as a double-edged knife against it surely helps regularise periods.
