Menstrual Calendar

January 7, 2011

Keep a Menstrual Calendar

It’s a good idea to keep track of your monthly menstrual cycle so that you, approximately, know when your period will start. That way you can be prepared, especially if you plan on taking a trip. By knowing when your period will start will also help you determine whether you are pregnant, if your cycle starts regularly every month, or suspect any menstrual problems.

Tip: Women close to their menopause or young teenagers are more likely to have irregular cycles.

Seek medical attention if:

  • You have irregular menstrual period, excessive or any other abnormal bleeding.
  • You have very severe pain during menstruation that is not relieved by over the counter pain killers.
  • You are experiencing pelvic pain that is not related to menstruation.
  • You are not having periods.
  • Your menstrual cycle is less than 21 days or more than 35 days apart.
  • Anything that seems abnormal for you about your period.
