what do doctors consider irregular periods?

Is it when you skip periods, or it is when one month af shows on day 26 and another it shows on day 35?

  • I asked a nurse at one of my doctor's offices one time, and she said anything over 35-day cycles. A little bit of irregularity is normal; not many women have exactly the same length cycle every month, many women have a 30-day cycle followed by 32 days then 29 days, etc.

  • I THINK it's when it falls consistently out of the 28-31 day cycle...That definitely includes skipping periods, multiple periods within a month, etc...

    Well...maybe not accurate about the 28-31day cycle, but I mean when one is 28days, one is 32days, one is 24days, etc...

  • Irregular is varying in lengths and duration.

  • Anything that doesn't follow a regular pattern, whether that is length of cycle or number of flow days, etc . . .
