What is a normal menstrual cycle?

The normal menstrual cycle varies from woman to woman. However, the average is to have periods every 28 days. Regular cycles that are shorter or longer than this, from 21 to 40 days, are normal. The female hormone oestrogen levels start to rise during the first half of the cycle. To prepare for pregnancy, Oestrogen makes the womb lining thicken.
The menstrual cycle’s midpoint is between 10 to 16 days after your period. The ovaries release ova through a process referred to as ovulation. During this time, a woman is most fertile.
A normal menstrual cycle lasts about 21 to 40 days.
