A woman's menstrual cycle is typically 28 days which means that you will have your period every 28 days which obviously doesn't coincide with the same day every month since some months have different numbers of days in them. This is further complicated by the fact that not all cycles are of 28 days and not all cycles are regular, it is not at all uncommon to change one or two days each month.
When you first have your period, you may find you have another in just a few weeks or you might not have one for several months, it can start off as irregular and then become regular or it can equally go the other way. An unpredictable cycle is not necessarily a sign that something is wrong.
You can keep a menstrual calendar in your diary and measure the time between the first day of your menstrual period and the next. Do not be surprised, as this can vary between 19 and 35 days, apparently only 14% of females actually have a 28 day cycle.
Taking birth control pills can be a reason for a more predictable cycle but you will eventually be able to tell when your period is due by watching your body. Some
girls will get cramping or skin blemishes, while others will get sore breasts, it is a good idea to keep tampons or pads handy in case you start unexpectedly. The period may last between 2 - 7 days and during this time your flow may vary, so a light day doesn't necessarily mean your period is finished.
I am 19 Years old and my period used to come after every 4 weeks or a day or 2 days earlier.However it has not come for 14 days like usual after I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend, and we can also assure that he did not insert his sperm. May I know what can lead to result to late period or is it the sign of pregnancy?
I have my period on the 11 and that is today and it has not come yet and I have just barley started in january and I don't know what to do and I am freaking out cause it has not started yet
I have gotten my period on the 10th for the last 4 months...weird!!
A normal cycle is every 28 days. You count 28 days from the first day of your last period.
Well, I got my peroid when I was 11, and I am still 11! For me, it stayed for 2 days and just went off, sometimes when it bleeds, you don't know when it stops but if the period stops after 2 or 3 days then you would probably take the it off. At least thats what happened to me! And if you had sex just naked without having to put on your condoms then you would probably be pregnant (If the boy inserted his sperm) Now I don't know much about sex stuff but if you didnt put on your condoms then yes, it would probably be a sign of pregnancy, even if you are a teenager! And trust me, your parents wouldnt be so pleased about it if they found out!
It depends really to whether you are on a contraceptive pill or something equivalent? If not then no it will usually be a certain amount of days
