Irregular menstrual cycles mean that there is no predictability in a persons menstrual cycles. Typically when a person has irregular cycles there are weeks or months difference between menstruation and/or they may have irregular bleeds between menstruation. You an have monthly periods with an irregular cycle, but often people think their cycles are irregular because they don't understand that a persons cycles may not always be 28 days or that cycle lengths can change.

When is the best time to take a pregnancy test if you have irregular periods?

In my opinion ,since I don't know exactly how your cycles run .I would say to look back to the last period you had and depending on how long it's been and your cycles(every other month ,3 timesa year),if it has been longer than it usually is between periods I would do 1 now. I hope this helps or at least gives you something to judge by. And remember to do it first thing in the morning.

If your period is usually 6 days if it last only 2 is something wrong?

Depends, if you got your first period within 3 years ago, then it's nothing to worry about. It is very irregular during those years. Sometimes it's super heavy, and sometimes you don't notice it because it's so light and short. Sometimes it will last a week, other times it may only stay a day or two. Occasionally you might skip a month or two, but there's nothing to worry about unless you're having sex. Once I got it twice in one month. So you have nothing to worry about. It depends on your age. If you are menopausal then you may just be spotting after your actual period.

Can periods occur at any time of the month or do they have to be around the same time each month?

Every woman is a little different in this matter, but the average is about 28 days. That's not quite one calendar month, so a woman's periods will generally NOT correspond with the same day of each 30- or 31-day calendar month.

Why would someone have their period every month?

you are supposed to have your period every single month to shed the layer that would have protected your baby in the womb. When it is no longer needed it leaves through the vagina and the same will happen next month. So you should have your period every single month (unless on a medication that changes your cycle). If you don't have your period every month i would suggest seeing a doctor to talk about it.
