I have irregular periods. i.e time span between my one period and next period vary from 30 to 50 days. So my question is will this cause me any pregnancy complications In future when i'll get pregnant??

It may mean having a difficult time pinning down ovulation times, but it won't mean anything in terms of once you are pregnant no... because cycles and ovulation stop.

If your periods are irregular, often that means that you do not ovulate every month (or at the same time). So it may mean taking a bit more time to become pregnant.

Many people do not have regular menstrual cycles for any number of reasons. All Stephanie meant by "you may not ovulate every month" was that because there is so much time between your cycles, sometimes more than a month, that you are ovulating less frequently. But you are still ovulating before each time you menstruate.

For a lot of people their periods will just regulate themselves as time goes on and as they get older. For some people they won't. If you have a doctor who you are able to talk then then you can ask if they have any advice, but it's not really a problem or an issue.

Too? Unless you're ready to try for having a baby (ready money-wise, safe place to live, emotionally, so on and so forth) there's no reason to be worried about all of this now. When you are ready, if you're still having irregular cycles that's the time to talk with a doctor as Andy said, otherwise, you're worrying yourself over something that may not even be the case when you are ready.

Actually i am already 21 now.but you are right its too early to get worried about these issues.i just wanted to make sure that its not something serious.because then i would have taken some action early rather than knowing some complications in future. Thanks a lot for your help.
