Subtle tweaks to your diet and knowing what not to eat during periods can help you naturally regulate your menstrual cycle. Of course, you’ll still need to manage stress and follow your doctor’s advice, but adding these foods to your diet is a good place to start.

We know that periods occur due to a complex interaction between different hormones, but no two people experience their cycle the same way. A regular menstrual cycle, on average, happens over a period of 28 days, but it can vary from person to person. It is normal for your cycle to be of lengths ranging from 21 days to around 35 days. Due to this varying nature, it is important to keep track of your own cycle to figure out how your menstrual cycle works. After all, a regular menstrual cycle is a sign of good physical health.

Although your dates might shift within these margins occasionally, if you see sustained differences in your period beyond this (erratic, delayed, or missed periods, abnormal bleeding patterns, and so on), you might be experiencing irregular periods.
