The research we have so far seems to support that drinking, even in small amounts, can affect your hormone levels, and in a lot of women, it can cause period irregularity. Your cycle operates on a specific symphony of fluctuating hormones. So when alcohol comes in and makes changes to those levels, cycle irregularity can result.

Estrogen and testosterone are two very important hormones in people with periods, and when they are increased by alcohol consumption, they can alter when you ovulate and thus change when you menstruate. This makes for irregular periods, which can be frustrating to deal with.
