Hello Mhiz Vicky,

Welcome again. The first day of your period is day one of the new menstrual cycle. It ends on the first day of your next period. Use a calendar to mark the day your period starts. Count the days in between. That is how you calculate the length of your menstrual cycle.

Hello Mhiz Vicky,

I don't know, but 22 days is considered short.
