Irregular periods are extremely common and are usually nothing to worry about. People often say that a regular period occurs every 28 days, but actually, every woman's menstrual cycle is different. Depending on your body and your hormones, you may get your period every 20 days or your may get your period every 35 days. A good way to determine if your periods are regular is to keep a chart and count the number of days between each period. If they occur with roughly the same number of days between each cycle, then your periods are regular. A regular period typically lasts five days, but it is completely normal to menstruate for anywhere between three and seven days.

Irregular periods aren't unusual; they affect about 30 per cent of women in their reproductive years. An irregular period is any type of bleeding that is abnormal when compared to your usual menstrual cycle. This can include a late period, an early period or bleeding between periods. It can also appear as particularly heavy bleeding or scanty bleeding. Many women also experience irregular periods in the form of a missed period, continuous periods, or periods that occur twice in one cycle.

Sometimes there is no cause for irregular periods but sometimes they may be caused by stress, tiredness, excessive exercise, a change in diet, pregnancy, a new contraceptive may take a while to get used to and when girls first begin their period, it can take three years for it to develop a regular pattern.

If irregular periods are getting you down and affecting your life then you could try a form of contraception which regulates periods. With the Pill you know exactly when your period will occur and contraceptives such as ‘Implantanon’ and ‘the Injection’ stop periods completely so you never need to worry about irregular periods. Speak to your GP about your options.

No it is not bad. Sometimes women will have their period a little early or late. It is nothing to worry about. Ans there are times women might have miscalculated their dates for when its due knowing that there are less days in some months and more in the other months.

Its very normal. It could take a year for your periods to become regular.

The white discharge is your "mid month" its when your ovulating.

Hope that this helps

Early periods then normal usual have absolutly no cause for concern, if you have just recently started within like the past year then your period may not regulate for about another 5 to 6 months. But if it was late that would be a cause for concern but I would worry if I were you. It happened to me plenty of times and iam fine!! Lol

It's very common to have some variation, and probably nothing to worry about. However, if your periods are irregular for some months you should have a check-up - diet, stress and illness can cause irregular periods. You can find out more here.

It can happen; it's happened to me. But if the period is not a normal period for you, and especially if it was shorter and/or lighter than you usually have, and if you've been sexually active, it could be implantation bleeding (which happens when a fertilized egg implants, or attaches itself to the lining of your uterus). If you are concerned you might be pregnant, take a pregnancy test 5 days or so after you would normally have expected your period.
