You’re planning a vacation, or even your honeymoon, so you want to know when you’ll get your period. That’s when a period calendar comes in handy. How do you make one? Here’s how…
You’ll have better success if you find a calendar or notebook that you will use just for your period calendar.
One of the best ways to become regular enough in your cycle to make a calendar is to use birth control pills.
Whether you’re on the Pill or not, you ought to still have some idea of how long your cycle is. For most women, a cycle is between 21 and 28 days long.
Do you delay your period when you’re feeling stressed? Look ahead to mid-term and final exams, and count in an extra couple of days for those.
Don’t use pen! If you use ink, and your cycle changes a little, you’ll have to start over!
No-one’s cycle is completely dead-on perfect, so leave a little wiggle room when planning a big vacation or your honeymoon. Instead of making it the last or first week of your cycle, plan your event in the middle.
When making and projecting your calendar, don’t forget to record the week OFF, your period week! I did that once and it messed up my entire calendar for the year!
A menstruation calendar can be a great tool, but only if you do it right! Do you have any tips or ideas on how to make it accurate and effective? What works best for you?
