Hi,
before I haven't been interested in this..

But because I will start having sex for the first time in a few months.. I have decided to start keeping track of my periods. (ya never know right?)

The thing is, I don't know what's a normal cycle of days between periods.

My first tracking was 20 days.
Now I'll see if my next one will be in 20 days too.

anyhow, my question...
what's a normal ammount of days, like the average cycle?

And, is 20 days unlucky?
Thanks!

Healthy menstrual cycles last between 21–45 days. A couple of years after you begin menstruation for the first time, cycles shorten to an adult length of 21–34 days.

I suppose 20 days is unlucky in the sense that you get your period more frequently! You can learn more about menstruation here.

Yep --- and be sure to schedule an annual exam with a gynecologist. Once you're sexually active, it's important to monitor your vaginal health once a year with PAP smears.
