Thanks for posting your query.

First of all it is important to know whether you are ovulating or not. You could know it by 2 ways,

>First by your self: like having pain or discomfort in abdomen in mid cycle, mild increase in body temperature and change in character of cervical mucus.

>Second by ultrasound examination.

If the only thing you are concerned is variation in duration of period there is nothing to worry.

This could be absolutely normal in many females. Still if you are concerned and having some other problem than one can think of some hormonal imbalance.

Please consult a gynaecologist and get your self examined.

There could be some hormonal imbalance like thyroid,prolactin and other hormones, their level in the body can be measured by blood tests as per advise from your doctor

I hope this helps and clarify your ideas.

Do write again if you have something more to ask.

In case you do not have further query, please accept the answer.
