Okay, so something I've had going on since about the beginning of the year and got old fast is that my period comes around roughly every 21 days. I then bleed for two days and spot for three more. I've read your article on menstruation, and done some research, but I think I would like to just talk to someone in the know. I'm in the lower area of a healthy weight for my height, but I am not underweight. I do have a regular to high amount of stress in my life, but not as much now as sometimes in the past. So I guess I'm wondering if this sounds normal, or what I could do to get on a 28-day cycle, I know there are ways, I just want to know my options. thanks for taking the time!

Not all periods follow a 28-day cycle. Some people have cycles that are shorter than that, some have cycles that are longer than that, and some have cycles that are all over the map. So, there isn't really anything at all wrong with your menstrual cycle.
