Biby, you need to count the days between. So the day when your period started is day 1. Count until the day before your next period started. Compare these counts you are getting to see how long your cycles are.

Remember that every month have a different number of days, so even the most regular 28 day cycle will not start every month on the same day. The calendar date is not important, just the length.

Does this explain it better?

Biby, yes. Cycles between 21 and 35 days are considered normal.

It is very short so you will most likely ovulate between day 4 and day 10 of your cycle. So you would be an example of a woman that can possibly get pregnant from sex on your period.

You might want to talk to your doctor about this when you see her again to hear what she thinks. But it is not something to worry about.

Take care!
