what is considered and inregular period?

Here is the thing since I had my 2nd DD almost 17 months ago my periods are anywhere from 24 to 29 days when before I had her they were exactly every 28 days. Are they still considered regular? When are they considered inregular?

  • Yes I believe they are still regular. A couple of days is still considered regular. Irregular would be bleeding between periods or constantly bleeding. My sister hasn't had a child yet but her periods have been irregular since she was 15 and she is 24 now. She bleeds more in a month then she is off of her period. I use to bleed twice a month. It's nice not having a period anymore and still being young enough to enjoy life and wear the cute clothes and bathing suits. I had to have a hysterectomy when I was 30. Best thing I ever done for myself. You are fine honey. You are still very much normal.

  • I would think if they consistently fall between 24 and 29 days, that would be considered regular. I think when you have a 28 day cycle one month, 68 the next, 45 the next, etc....that is irregular. Of course, this is just my opinion. I don't know what the medical profession considers irregular.

  • Unfortunetly, it's considered in the normal range. I haven't had my first baby yet, so maybe mine will become very consistent. But, when I asked my doctor when I was trying to conceive that it was in the normal range. And that some women are only lucky enough to have it fall the same every month.
