The average menstrual cycle is 28 days long. However, a normal cycle can be shorter or longer than this. It may be anywhere from 21 to 35 days long. Most periods last 3 to 5 days, but anywhere from 2 to 7 days is normal. Most women have a scope of 11 and 13 menstrual periods consistently, each year. When the menstrual cycle initially starts, it can take up to 2 years to set up a typical cycle. After puberty, most women's cycle is conventional. The time range between each period is relative. In any case, for a few women, the time between periods and the proportion of bleeding vary essentially. This is known as the sporadic month to month cycle. The guideline sign of unusual month to month cycle is the time when the cycle is longer than 35 days, or in case it moves long.
