Few women get periods on time, while others experience fluctuations in their cycles. Having irregularity is not a cause for concern per se, but when these irregularities become regular, it should be considered a red flag that needs medical attention.
When is the menstrual period normal?
A menstrual cycle is counted from the first day to the first day of the next one and lasts from 2 to 7 days. The menstrual cycles can last longer or be shorter than usual. At times, you might experience a disruption in this cycle with symptoms such as too heavy or too light bleeding, painful cramps, presence of clots, spotting in between periods, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Like any bodily phenomena, these irregularities are normal as long as they fall under your tolerance zone. Otherwise, it would be best if you visited your gynecologist immediately.
