Irregular menstrual cycle

Menstrual cycle types


Irregular cycles are common

It seems surprising that most women have a rather irregular cycle. About 70% of all women have a cycle with strong fluctuations. In short, the length of the cycle varies from menstrual cycle to cycle by 8 days or more*. It is therefore all the more surprising that in many places in medicine the concept of the standard cycle is encountered. This is based on the fact that the female cycle is about 28 days long in almost all women. According to this concept, ovulation would always be in the middle of the cycle. At OvulaRing we can tell you that this is not at all the case.

An irregular cycle is not the same as an unhealthy cycle. You can be just as fertile. This is very important. Irregular means that your menstrual cycles don’t fit into a rigid pattern that has grown over the years. You can find out everything you need to know about irregular cycles on this page. Here you can also find out how you can safely determine your ovulation and fertile days. Or would you like to know how you can get pregnant with irregular cycles?

Classification and demarcation of other cycle types

The group of irregular cycles usually includes the PCOS cycle and in most cases also the long cycles. This is because a longer cycle length is usually also accompanied by a higher fluctuation in the intervals between periods.

The regular cycle is the antithesis of the irregular cycle. If 70% of women have a rather irregular cycle, only 3% have a regular cycle. The variation in the length of the cycles is only a maximum of ± 3 days. Also, short cycles are not usually irregular. In most cases, a shorter cycle length is accompanied by a smaller fluctuation in the length of the cycle.

Other types of cycles can occur regardless of whether they are regular or not.

Ovulation also occurs with irregular cycles

Irregular cycles can be perfectly healthy and show ovulation. Only here it is much more difficult to determine the exact ovulation day. Often short and long cycles alternate with early and late ovulations. The individual cycle patterns can be very different in each case. Despite their supposed irregularities, they nevertheless show recurring patterns.

OvulaRing recognises these patterns and therefore your ovulation. It doesn’t matter whether your cycle is short, long or irregular.

How do long cycles happen?

In women with long menstrual cycles, the first phase of the cycle is often prolonged. This means that the egg maturation or follicular phase is significantly longer than the ovulation phase. 70% of all women with very long cycles still ovulate and have fertile days. So with a long cycle you can get pregnant in principle. For the remaining 30%, the cycles are either completely without ovulation (monophasic) or there is a weakness of the corpus luteum or progesterone. In the latter case, the second half of the cycle is shorter than 10 days. In this case, not enough progesterone is released and pregnancy cannot develop.

With OvulaRing you can find out exactly whether you are ovulating despite long cycles. OvulaRing tells you whether you are ovulating during your cycles. In this way you can also find out whether you have a progesterone deficiency, for example.
