During what days in a normal menstrual cycle does a woman have clear skin and feels better in everyway?

Menses and Skin: Your skin is at its best during the 2nd phase of your cycle - the 9-day period between the end of menses and ovulation. This is also when your "mood" is likely to be better than the post-ovulatory luteal phase, when some experience moderate to severe pms. ...Read more

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

How many days late on your menstrual cycle is normal?

How many days late on your menstrual cycle is normal?

Depends: Some women have a 28 day cycle and some have a 35 day cycle, so being 5 days late for each of those women as an absolute number is going to mean something different. Basic rule of thumb, though, if you're more than 5-7 days late, you're likely late. Could be stress, weight gain/loss, hormones, thyroid or pregnancy. See your doctor if you're worried. ...Read more

Is it normal for your menstrual cycle to be more than 28 days?

Is it normal for your menstrual cycle to be more than 28 days?

Very common...: The 28 days are so called 'average cycle length" but this varies--i have seen patients having as short as 18 days and as long as 41. Most birth control pill packages are designed to have a 28-day cycle, but this is obviously is just an average. It is very common to have a few days longer or shorter than 28. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

My menstrual cycle started 12 days earlier than my normal date, is this normal ?

My menstrual cycle started 12 days earlier than my normal date, is this normal ?

Well: Its not unusual. People can have periods that are off or too heavy, thus many pill users. I doubt it's a sign of a major illness. Always check a pregnancy test but risk low by what's described. Finally, an ovulation predictor kit can tell u if ur ovulating. Good luck. ...Read more

My menstrual cycle has seem to change. Days between my cycles are 15-16 days. Is this normal?

My menstrual cycle has seem to change. Days between my cycles are 15-16 days. Is this normal?

Normal to vary: Some variation in cycle length is normal. We date cycles from the start of one cycle to the start of the next and normal cycle lengths vary from 21 days to 35 (or 42 in some sources). Whether your 15-16 days between cycles is normal or not depends on how long your periods are. Hope this helps. ...Read more

What can I do if my menstrual cycle has changed from 32 days to about 40 days. Is this normal?

Not to worry: If your cycles are regular, even as far apart as 40 days, i would not be concerned unless you are attempting pregnancy. Since menses represents prior ovulation, fewer ovulations can decrease fertility. As long as your periods act pretty much the same each time and there is no bleeding between and the menses are not heavier, i would not worry about it. ...Read more

I have been having a 13-20 day menstrual cycle that has been lasting longer than normal (7-10 days instead of 5).

Anovulatory bleeding: Pregnancy is always on the list of possibilities when a woman has abnormal uterine bleeding or cycles. You may be having anovulatory cycles (cycle without producing an egg from the ovary). If a urine pregnancy test is negative, i would recommend evaluation by your gynecologist, and treatment will depend on the cause of the abnormal bleeding and your current short-term pregnancy goals. ...Read more
