Needs some labwork: What you are describing is gradually prolonged menstrual cycles. Given that the time from when one releases an egg to when one menstruates is most often 14 days or so, this means that you are likely taking longer and longer to mature and release the egg. This can be due to many things; worth getting evaluated for thyroid abnormalites, pcos (polycystic ovarian syndrome) among others.
