Irregular menstruation with pain

Patient : My menstrual cycle has been irregular , as it occurs every 13 -16 days , where it should be 28 days. I also suffer from severe lower abdominal pain while period.I am a virgin so would you recommend anything I should do or take any medication or is there any home remedies?
Doctor :   Menstrual cramps or dysmenorrhea could be severe enough to limit normal activities and may require medication. Most of t he time no underlying cause can be found (primary dysmenorrhea). However, since you also have irregular periods, you will definitely need to see your doctor/gynecologist to rule out other underlying causes such as endometriosis, ovarian cysts, uterine leiomyoma, pelvic inflammatory disease, adhesions and uterine polyps. Diagnosis would depend on a thorough history and physical examination, blood work, urinalysis and an ultrasound.
