Period Tracker

Period Tracker
Let’s start with an overview of a ‘normal’ menstrual cycle:
◦Your menstrual cycle averages 28 days.
◦The 4 weeks are split in the middle by day 14 which is when you ovulate.
◦Day 1 is when your period starts.
◦The first two weeks are called the follicular phase
◦The second two weeks are called the luteal phase

Most of my planners use ‘Menstrual Cycle Tracker’, it looks like morse code but it is a simple way of identifying where in your cycle you are.

Each dash or – represents a week and | represent day 14
