    Hey im just interested how the female menstruation cycle works lol. What i wanna know is how many days do you count until your next cycle? I mean some girls say their periods are every 23 days. Do they count this from the end of a period to the start of the next? Or from the end of a period to the end of the next? :confused:
    Just something i wondered about 5 minutes ago :confused:

    Its slightly different for every girl, I think the average is a 28 day cycle from the beginning of one period to the next, in other words 23 days from the end of one to the beggining of the next, hope that helps

    The standard textbook cycle is 28 days long
    That includes 7 days of bleeding
    You count the days of your period from the beginning of one period to the beginning of the next, or the end of one to the end of the next. i.e one full cycle
    Naturally not everyone is 28 days although it's pretty common... something to do with the moon...
    It can realistically be from about 21 days to about 35... some girls have both :p: Not everyone bleeds the full 7 days - some have as little as 2 or 3 (beeatch!!!) some regularly bleed as much as 14 days a month

    Hope that wasn't too gross!!
