> I've had irregular menstral cycles for as long as i can remember.. but recently they've become wores (it's used to hit around the same week, now I'm periodically skipping months or starting 10+ days late) Are there any herbs that you know of to help regulate these cycles.

I've found vitex agnus castus to be the most effective hormonal normalizer. It works through the pituitary gland. In your case, I would allow 4 to 8 weeks as a trial.

If you use the dried berries for tea, use 1 tsp. each morning. Tincture dosage would be ½ tsp each morning. Let me know if this helps.
