If you have a 28 day cycle, this is the first day of your period. It's a good idea to get in the habit of keeping track of first day of your menstrual period. When you have successfully conceived, knowing the first day of your LMP (last menstrual period) will help your healthcare provider work out your due date.

Ovulation, and therefore conception, generally occurs 14 days before your period was due. If you have a 28-day menstrual cycle (which is assumed by many healthcare providers) that means that you ovulated on day 14. If your cycle is a few days longer, you probably ovulated after day 14, and your baby may arrive a few days after your estimated due date.

Check out the conception date calculator to see how different cycle lengths can create different opportunities for conception.

Cycle smarts

If you have a menstrual cycle that's longer or shorter than 28 days, be sure to use your adjusted EDD when generating your daily page. In the long run, it's best to keep in mind that your due date is probably not going to be the exact date your baby is born on, so if your cycle varies a little from month to month, don't worry if your due date may be off by a few days.

Do you know your body parts? The vulva is the external female genitalia, and includes the labia, clitoris and vaginal opening.
