How often do you cycle?

I find it amazing that most women cycle every 28 days. I've never had that in my whole life. I started when I was 10 or 11 and they've never been closer than 3-6 months apart (that's with no birth control). Somehow, I ovulate every 28 days, but I don't have a period for over 3 months at a time.

  • Lately I've had wierd cycles from having my baby and being on BC, but before I'd have a period every 33-35 days.

  • I do every 28-30 days. But they are not steady during the 5-7 day bleeding time. I start and stop start and stop. Its horrible. But I also suffer from endometriosious(think thats how its spelled) Probably not....he he..... Mine are very Painful and dont wish it on anyone! Are you sure that for you that is healthy? I know for me if I dont shed that lining of the uterus and the blood build up it is very bad!!!

  • OP here---Yeah, because I don't have them often, my periods are horrible and very, very heavy! But I've been to the doctor several times and they always say it's normal and if I WANT to be regular, I can go on birth control, but there's no need for it.

  • When I was 16 I started having problems with ovarial cyst and cervical cancer. I ovulate every month just because I feel the pinch in my lower abdomen, and was told by a gyno that I am, but I only have my period maybe 2-3 times a year. I never know when it's coming, but it always happens the 23rd or 24th of a month, and last no more than 3 days.

  • It appears mine always comes on the 2nd of the month. That's how it has been for the past 8-10 months.
