Regular periods mean that you have a period at APPROXIMATELY the same time each month. This can vary by 3-4 days and still be normal. Completely random dates would make them irregular.

Irregular periods- Cycles between 23– 35 days are very common. A woman may get her period only one to four times a year. Or she might have periods that occur two to three times in a month and involve spotting or extremely heavy flow. Alternatively, she may have heavy episodes of bleeding every two to three months. Irregular periods are simply what is irregular for you.
