Is 24 days quite a normal gap between periods?

Have been on the pill on and off for the best part of 20 years. Last year, DP had the snip, so I've been off the Mini Pill for about six/seven months all told now.

Started off with a cycle of 28 days... gone down to 26... now it's 24. Bloody hell, that seems a short gap. I'm sure I used to go four/five weeks when I've been off the pill before. Tell me this is all completely normal. I'm 43 next month btw. smile

I think normal is classed as anything between 21 and 35 days. So still counted as normal.

Thanks Armadillo! Seems a very short gap to me!

Puppy - exactly same as me, used to be 28 days when I came off the pill, returned to 28 days after I had DS1, had DS2 over 2 years ago and since then has regularly been 24 days. It is definitely a PITA and seems like it's never far away any more.

I have a gap of 14-19 days and following investigation it has been classed as normal for me - a pain in the arse but normal.

I would say if concerned see your gp

Thanks all. How annoying Norks. I'm not concerned enough to see a doc at this stage, I don't think... will see if the gap gets even shorter though. I dunno if the pill has mucked me up a bit tbh.

My cycle is around 24/25 days.
