Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Menstruation occurs when the lining of your uterus, precisely the endometrial lining, is shed due to not getting an adequate supply of blood and oxygen due to the absence of fertilization of an egg by a sperm cell. Menstruation is regulated by reproductive hormones, including estrogen, progesterone, FSH, LH, and GnRH.
The menstrual cycle is defined as the distance between the first day of menstruation each month. Normally, the menstrual cycle ranges from 21 to 35 days. Determining the menstrual cycle, ideally done at least based on the menstrual schedule of the last 6 to 9 months. So, not just 3 months huh?
In short, here's how to calculate your menstrual cycle:
January 1 to February 7=37 days
February 7 to March 13=34 days
However, as explained above, you should first record your menstrual schedule for at least the last 6 to 9 months. This way, you can know more objectively, what is your average cycle, shortest cycle, and also your longest cycle. Determining the menstrual cycle is very important, including when you are planning a pregnancy. Because, by knowing the menstrual cycle, you can more easily determine the fertile period and the right time to have sex.
