For a normal woman, a menstrual cycle lasts an average of 28 days. It is usually between 21 to 35 days. When the menstrual cycle of a woman has a length variation of between 8 to 20 days, the woman is said to have an abnormal or irregular period. The menstrual cycle of a woman has a key role to play in determining when a woman can get pregnant. This is why irregular periods are a big challenge to any woman who experiences it, because she cannot tell when she can get pregnant. Other factors that determine a woman’s ability to get pregnant apart from irregular periods include stress and Polycystic Ovaries Syndrome (PCOS).
