I am having irregular periods[edit]

I am 13 years old. i will be 14 on 31 august. i had my first periods this month. it's 7th day. On the fifth day of my dates i didn't get my periods so i thought that maybe it's the last day of my periods so i removed the pad. the next day my pajama has some blood so i putt the pad back. In night i saw that my pad is all most clean. so in the morning i removed my pad again. and now my pajama is dirty again. what should i do? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:32, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

  • It's normal at your age and it takes years to get to a regular cycle, and some women never get there and that's pretty normal too. What you should do is wash your pyjamas and try a lightdays pad for a few days after you think it's done. You'll get the hang of it! (talk) 10:47, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

Layman's terms are confusing[edit]

"Length variation between eight and 20 days is considered as moderately irregular cycles" Is this the variance or the standard deviation of cycle lengths or the range or what? (talk) 10:47, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

It generally refers to the range. I'll specify this in the article. Mikael Häggström (talk) 11:28, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
