Is your menstrual cycle irregular?

For example One month the cycle is 23 days and the next month it is 35 days, then it is considered irregular. If your cycle length is extremely short, or long then there are high chances you will have a fertility issue.
How much variation in cycles is normal?
In case, the cycle is off by one or 2 days from month to month, then it is pretty normal. But, if the cycle length varies by 5 or more days then there is a high risk of fertility problems.
