How do I track my period?

At MyMonthlyCycles, you can track your period using either our Period Calendar or our Menstrual Calendar.

Period Calendar
The Period Calendar is ideal if you're just starting out with MyMonthlyCycles and want to quickly add your menstrual cycle history. Or, if you just want to track your period and have your average menstrual cycle length automatically calculated for use on other MyMonthlyCycles tools (such as our menstrual calculator, ovulation calculator, or the many menstrual and fertility reminders).

It's very easy to track with the Period Calendar: simply click on each date cell of your period to track that period day.

The period calendar enables you view multiple months at one time. So, for instance, you can use the 12 month view to see your periods over the last year, or previous years.

Menstrual Calendar
You can also track your period using our more comprehensive Menstrual Calendar. In addition to tracking when your period occurred, you can track detail about your menstrual period, including daily notes, and flow characteristics such as how heavy your period was that day, and if there were clots.

The menstrual calendar is also where you can track other events in your monthly cycles: your menstrual cycle symptoms (PMS symptoms, menstrual related symptoms, perimenopause symptoms, and more), weight, non-menstrual spotting, basal body temperature, and more.

How To: Goto the Menstrual Calendar. Locate your period day in the calendar. Click Edit in the calendar date cell. At the My Events page, click Add Period. On the Period Edit screen, fill in your period details. Click Save & Stay if you want to track another period day. You can use the mini navigational calendar on the right of the screen to access the date you want to track.
