Long Mesntrual Cycle and Falling Pregnan
Dear Doc,

My wife is trying to fall pregnant. We have only really monitored her menstrual cycle this past two months, since we started trying. She never really monitored her cycle before. The past two cycle were 41 and 43 days respectively. Is this a big problem, that her menstrual cycle is so long, since it should be between 21-35. Her menses is quite normal flow and last only 5 days. She is 24. Has only used the pill for about 4-5 months at the time we got married, which was 2 1/2 years ago. Never again since then. Thank you in advance. G

This cycle isn't normal. She should see a gynaecologist to check whether she is ovulating.
