Do you keep track of your period?

I just never have and my dr. would always get mad at me for not knowing any idea of a due date.

What are some benefits to keeping track, except for due dates?

  • Planning around it lol Like, you know your going to feel like crap when your period comes around. If anything goes funky, you'll the case of health issues.
    I would just keep track for a few months and I knew I'd always start exactly 4 wks and 1 day from the last month I started.

  • Nope. I tend to know round about when it's coming just because I can figure it wasn't last week or the week before so it must be on it's way in a week... But no, I never keep track of all that!

  • I do, that way I am prepared a few days before I am expecting it. Of course, for a long time we were trying to have a baby too, so it was easier that way also. But even after the baby comes I will keep track again.

  • I do, I have always just kind of made a little note of it on my cell phone calendar, just for reference. But now I really do it because of TTC and tracking ovulation.

  • I think my husband keeps track of it better than I do, probably for his own protection. I can get PMS pretty bad!

  • I never really have. I've always known about when I'm supposed to start, and I can always tell when its coming. I've been on the pill since my son was born, though, so I always know when to expect it now - although I'm not really keeping track, lol.

  • If something goes wrong, a record is a very useful thing.  When I first developed symptoms of my fibroids, they would have been considered very insignificant to a doctor.  However my symptoms became increasingly more serious at a very alarming rate.  I was able to give my doctor an accurate history of my normal cycles and a VERY detailed record of my symptoms as they progressed month by month.
