It depends on why your menstrual cycles are irregular to begin with.

When we talk about irregular cycles we're talking about weeks or months difference from one cycle to the next - up to a weeks variation from your average cycle is normal - and when your menstrual cycle is irregular like that there's a reason that should be investigated and treated by your doctor.

You can help regulate your cycles by staying healthy: eat a healthy balanced diet, exercise regularly, sleep well, avoid stress, maintain healthy weight - it also helps to take daily multi-vitamins and a herbal treatment like chaste tree to help regulate hormones, lunaception can also help.

Hormonal Birth Control DOES NOT regulate menstruation, it actually does completely the opposite - it works by stopping your menstrual cycle so that you don't ovulate, and thus you don't menstruate - the bleeding women experience on hormonal birth control is a withdrawal bleed controlled by the birth control. This will just temporarily cover-up the problem, and can make it worse when you stop.

Everyone has a different menstrual cycle and there is no real way to make your cycle more regular. However, if you once had a regular one and it began to shift up, it could be due to stress , lack of sleep or improper dieting. I have heard that the birth control pill helps keep your period more regular and expected but of course this doesn't help you get pregnant, and your periods may revert to irregularity when you stop.

You will be on a regular schedule, but the periods you have while on the pill are not actual periods, this is because you never produce an egg while on the pill. The pill simply regulates when your body "clears out" down there so you will bleed on a fairly normal schedule.

Is your body back to normal if you have regular periods after being on the injection?

Yes, if you have not received an injection in 6 months or more and you did not have regular periods while taking the injection. The depo-provera shot suppresses ovulation. Once you begin having regular periods again, then your body should have returned to normal. However, many women still have periods, even when on this type of birth control, so after being off of the injection for several months and once you begin regular periods again, you need to check for ovulation using an ovulation predictor kit, just to make sure. However, realize that it may take as long as 18 months after the last depo-provera shot for periods to return to normal.
