The menstrual cycle is the monthly series of changes a woman's body goes through in preparation for the possibility of pregnancy1

The menstrual cycle isn't the same for every woman1. Menstrual flow might occur every 21 to 35 days and last two to seven days1. Menstruation, “having your period” happens every month2

Tracking your menstrual cycles can help you understand what's normal for you, time ovulation and identify important changes — such as a missed period or unpredictable menstrual bleeding1. While menstrual cycle irregularities usually aren't serious, sometimes they can signal health problems1. When bleeding occurs between normal periods, there are many possible causes. Whether you notice spotting or heavier bleeding between periods, it’s important to see your doctor for testing, diagnosis, and treatment options3

Start keeping a record of your menstrual cycle on a calendar1. Begin by tracking your start date every month for several months in a row to identify the regularity of your periods1

If you have questions or concerns about your menstrual cycle, talk to your health care provider.
