Hi again!

If you are taking your Pill at the same time everyday and never miss a pill, it should be very regular although a day or two late isn't anything to worry about. Is this the case with you?

Hi Anonymous

Thanks for your post, but there was no more information other than what you wrote in the title.

The average period lasts 3-7 days and a normal cycle is anywhere from around day 21 to day 35 with the average being around 28 days - so there is no hard and fast rule about periods.

As we get older, our cycles change - how old are you? Are you using birth control - what kind?

If you are under 18, your cycle may not quite be regular yet.

Also, are you wondering if this could mean pregnancy? Pregnancy would be highly unlikely - a day or two late in terms of periods doesn't really mean anything. Our body clocks are not always regular.

You can read all about the menstrual cycle here: http://www.empowher.com/condition/menstrual-cycle

If this didn't answer your question, then please give us more information and we'd be happy to help you further!
