Irregular periods: Normal periods occur about every 4 weeks, last up to 1 week, and do not cause severe pain. Periods which are more frequent or less frequent than about once monthly, last a long time or a very short time, or are accompanied by severe pain, are not normal. A woman should seek a doctor's care if having irregular periods.

Just that: Most women's menses occur every 28-32 days. Some have intervals shorter or longer than that, but the interval is the same very month.Those are regular menses. Irregular is when the interval between periods varies by more than 4 days.
