    Default When do you consider your cycle "regular"

    When do others consider their cycle to be regular?

    I have always had irregular cycles. Since my period has returned after DS I haven't had two consecutive cycles of the same length, except my last two cycles have both been 25 days.
    After how many cycles of the same or similar length would you consider your cycle to be regular?

    On a side note, we've recently learnt that I don't regularly ovulate and we are ttc.

    I would consider mine "regular" if my cycle came every month or so within what is considered a normal time frame (24-35 days). My cycle is regular every 28-29 days however in the past 12 months I have had 2 cycles at 26 days and one at 34. I still consider my cycle to be regular. I usually ovulate pretty regular too except it was earlier on the 26 day cycles and later on the 34 day cycle.

    If you found out you are not ovulating regularly - it is unlikely that you will have a regular cycle. Do you have PCOS?

    I had an ultrasound recently and no PCOS. Everything was normal. And apart from my progesterone level everything was normal. I've always had irregular periods. My GP thinks I just don't ovulate every cycle. My cycles range from 24 - 32 days ie I'll have a 31 day cycle followed by a 24 day cycle etc. it gets annoying.

    I've bought a stack of cheap opks I was thinking of using over the next few cycles. Just to see what happens

    Yes that's a good idea. I used them so I always knew when I was about to ovulate. I took my temp each morning too so that I knew once ovulation had passed etc. it will help you know exactly where you are at so AF can be expected instead of surprising you

    Mine aren't regular, my average is 32 days which my period app works out for me but they vary from 28-35 days. I have no issues with ovulating.

    i consider mine to be regular. before the pill they used to come every 30 or 31 days, and i used to be able to just repeat the number on the date and that would be the due date of my period lol. After my daughter was born, they have ranged from 26 to 32 days, but are 28 days about 3 out of every 4 cycles so i consider that regular.
