Hello, my name is tesa. In November my menstruation is 9th, my menstrual december is 16th, and in January 25th, I have irregular menstruation, so I want to ask, how many days do I have my menstrual cycle?

1 Answer:

Hello Tesa,


Thank you for the question.

Menstrual cycle is defined as the distance between the first day of menstruation every month. So, if that's your menstrual schedule, then your menstrual cycle is:

Cycle 1 = 9 November 2019 to 16 December 2019 = 37 days
Cycle 2 = December 16, 2019 to January 25, 2020 = 40 days
Etc

For women with irregular menstrual cycles like you, menstrual cycles cannot be calculated only based on brief information on your menstrual schedule in the past 3 months. At the very least, information is needed regarding your menstrual schedule for the past 6 to 12 months so that your average menstrual cycle can be determined. That way, this information can only be useful, for example in an effort to determine the fertile period when you and your partner are trying to plan a pregnancy.


Normally, the menstrual cycle is around 21 to 35 days. If your average menstrual cycle is outside the normal range, then determining the fertile period is not enough just to do the calculation of the menstrual cycle. You also need to make observations on the characteristics of your cervical mucus as well as periodically measure your basal body temperature to better ensure this.


That's all our explanation. For more details, do not hesitate to consult directly with a doctor or obstetrician.


I hope this helps.
