What's a normal amount of days between periods?

This is really personal I know but I wonder about these things.
My cycle seems to be 34 days apart. Is this normal?

What’s normal for you is normal. Some are longer some are shorter. That seems about average.

[@589136,WanderingThrough] fair enough when you get told you have PCOS they don't really give you much info just that fertility is not great.
And a leaflet that makes you think there's absolutely something wrong with you.

[@1196310,Mellowgirl] If it’s consistent, that’s a good thing. There’s slightly more cause for concern if it’s irregular, but even then, it’s not necessarily bad.

[@589136,WanderingThrough] for now I think it's safe to say that this length of time means it's normal. Even if it feels long.
I'm not on contraception or intimate so my body is probably under the least amount of stress... Mentally, physically and emotionally.
I do think that if I had a better social life I probably wouldn't worry about things like this.

Average, 30 days or so, but mine only lasts a few days. Supposedly normal for women who are physically active on a regular basis

[@484750,rachelsj] mine lasts usually 7days but I always have a day of rest in the middle so 6 days

Periods are anything between 21 and 40 days,my own are the average 28 days.

It should generally be between 33 and 35 days, but there is not set standard. Consider your own set of circumstances and history.

[@8638,MarkPaul] OK thanks
it should be in sync with the moon cycle
[@1196310,Mellowgirl] the lunar phases

[@10636,QueenOfQuirk] I don't know anything about this? Is yours?
[@1196310,Mellowgirl] yes the moon is a huge influence; you can even use it to shorten your periods and make it painless
