In 30 percent of women, it was more than 13 days, but it was never fewer than 2 days in any woman. Arey found that among average adult women, one third of menstrual cycles departed by more than 2 days from the mean of the lengths of all cycles. In Arey's analysis of 5322 cycles in 485 normal women, an average interval of 28.4 days was estimated; his finding for the average cycle length in pubertal girls was longer days. [...]
