The best way to make a calendar? Good old-fashioned pen and paper! Get a journal or a calendar (there are also those tiny ones, like a card, that you can put in your wallet) to keep notes about your cycle. Another option, if you have a phone, is to download a period tracking app. I use an app because I have my phone with me all the time. Find what works for you – but the key is to stay consistent!
Just mark the first day of your period and count the number of days your menstrual cycle is (in the above mentioned example it was 32 days). So count from the first day of your period (that’s day 1) until day 32 (that is when you should expect your next period’s first day). When your period arrives, mark it with a little red dot, a P, or just an exclamation mark!
Other good things to note in your calendar are when you start noticing PMS (premenstrual syndrome) symptoms, which helps you to get a better understanding of your body and prepare for your period. And then remember the foods you should avoid mood swings.
