You probably learned, way back in high school, that your period typically happens on a 28-day cycle. While there are exceptions (for instance, it's perfectly normal for your cycle to run between 21-45 days when you're a teenager and 21-35 days once you're an adult — via Verywell Health), the bottom line here is, you should expect to see your period make its appearance approximately once a month.
But what if that isn't the case? What if, while your friends are able to literally set their watch (or period app) around their cycle, you're unable to? What if you're currently trying to conceive, yet because your cycle is kind of all over the place, it's hard to know exactly when you're ovulating? When your period is irregular, what should you do?
The reality is, there are all kinds of underlying reasons for why some women have irregular periods. Medical News Today says it could be anything from being on birth control or other medication, hormonal fluctuations, over-exerting oneself while exercising, or even stress — the best way to know for sure is to speak with your physician. In the meantime, there are some things that you can do to help to get your cycle back on track — like consuming foods that have a reputation for regulating menstrual cycles, for instance. And so, here are 10 that just may help to make your period more predictable (again).
Coriander seeds can help to balance out your hormones
Coriander is an herb full of fiber, calcium, magnesium, iron and several other nutrients. According to Organic Facts, when you choose to consume the seeds on a fairly consistent basis, they can help to reduce bodily inflammation, bring relief to skin issues like eczema, lower cholesterol levels, aid in digestion, and even help to speed up the healing process if you have an ulcer.
What makes coriander such a winner (whether you have them in seeds or tea form) when it comes to regulating your period is the herb contains properties that will not only improve the quality of your uterus, but help to balance out your hormones better so that your period will become more predictable (via The Health Site). Dr. Axe sings the seeds' praises because they can reduce bloating and cramping during your time of the month too.
As far as where to find coriander seeds, they are usually available at your local health food store. If you're wondering just how to enjoy them, some people grind them and use them as a spice. Other people like to briefly warm them up in a skillet, add some salt, and snack on them whole.
