The average menstrual cycle of a woman is 28 days although some women can have shorter cycles and some can have longer. The menstrual cycle is calculated from the first day of a woman’s period to the day before the next period.
At some time you may experience abnormal or irregular bleeding and it is important that this is investigated. This includes if bleeding occurs between periods, after sexual intercourse or after the menopause.
There are a number of common causes for abnormal or irregular bleeding which include endometrial polyps, fibroids or a vaginal infection – all of which can be treated. A serious cause, cancer of the womb or cervix, is rare.
