I am 21 years old virgin. I have problem of irregular periods.like i my cycle is not exactly of 28 or 30 days like other woman has.sometimes i get my periods after 38 or 45 days and sometimes i get it perfectly after 30 days.I had never taken any pill for postponing my period or so. But still it is irregular.why is it so?

So, the very widest range in the number of days you're seeing each cycle -- a difference between one and other -- is seven days? Do you often have that kind of a range, or is it more often, like you say, around 30 days?

Actually, it sounds to me like you're describing pretty regular periods.

Not everyone has 27, 28 or 30 day cycles. The number of days in a cycle vary from person to person, and usually, if cycles are no less than 21 days or no more than 40, healthcare providers are not going to be concerned because it's unlikely there's anything to be concerned about.
