For instance, a woman having a cycle of 33 days in a month, 31 days cycle in the next, and 35 days cycle following that, is considered to be normal. However, when a woman’s cycle is so inconsistent that she does not have a track when her periods might start, this implies she is experiencing irregular menstrual cycle.
