Typically, a healthy menstrual cycle is 28 days long. Of course, it varies by 7 to 10 days from person to person. But if you skip a cycle or two or your periods are always 10 or more days late—then it’s a clear tell-tale sign that something is majorly wrong with your reproductive health.

On top of it, if your lifestyle is as sedentary as a sloth’s, then there are higher chances of your periods going haywire. In such a case, even PMS symptoms won’t give you a breather.
