Regular or irregular periods?

In the past year i've noticed that my monthly cycle can vary - sometimes 27 days, sometimes 34 but never longer or shorter. I am 30,and until now i was always 27 or 28 days long every month. I first believed that these changes are just subtle and normal with my age, but i have read on a few websites that even that smallish change in length can be irregular hormone fluctuations. Is this true or am i just experiencing something normal? I don't have unusual heavy bleeding or pain, and my periods are usually 5 days long as they have always been. I am suffering from recurrent vaginal thrush and chronic migraine and wonder if there's a possible underlying hormone imbalance?

Re: Regular or irregular periods?

You could check with your doctor and have some blood work done- but as long as you are not experiencing anything weird - and they are staying at the usual 5 days and staying monthly...anywhere from every 28 -35 days is considered normal.

Our hormones do fluctuate, this doesnt mean anything is wrong, but every few years, we do see differences in our cycles right up until perimenopause, when they are all over the place into menopause, when they stop.

Talk to your doctor! She can run blood work and see if everything is normal. a FSH test will tell allot about your hormone levels.
