With respect to menstruation, the terms regular and irregular mean the frequency with which a woman gets her period. A regular menstrual cycle is considered to be 28 days long, but for some women it could be 25 to 31 days long and still be regular. Regular menstruation enables a woman to predict when she will next menstruate whereas with an irregular cycle, a woman never knows when her period will start until it does.
