I do believe every month or two is the correct amount of time.

if it didnt break probbaly a week and a half to a week... But it breaks basically every week...

Ive never really have a string on my main guitar last more then a week and a half or two weeks... Probably because i play somuch

My electric: When i run out of spare string length. (double locking, so i can just reatach broken strings) or tone gets really dull.
My Acoustic: used lightly maybe 3x a week, so i change when the string breaks.

For YOU? Its your preference, if you like the dull tone, change when you start breaking strings. If not, every week to month depending on your usage.

How often should you? If your strings dont break by the time their gunky and cleaning them with a cloth doesnt do anything... Yeah change them then.

Mine don't usually break, so I just change them when they're getting rusty and it's hard to play. New strings really make a difference when you're going from gunky old rusted ones.

I haven't broken a string in probably a year and a half haha

I change them on my main axe every week and a half too keep them constant with tone and playability.

every 2-3 weeks on my other axe.
