So if your periods are on average within that range even if +/- 4-5 days, it's normal. The problem of anovulatory cycles (absence of ovulation) causes cycles to be really irregular and often >35 days. ...Read more

Soon after periods start and close to menopause, times between periods can vary a lot more. ...Read more
