Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

In your case it is normal. Since you had your period on the 1st of December, taking that as the first day of your period, the period on the 27th came about 27 days later. This is normal since you have an average cycle of 28 days. Hope this helps. Take care!
