How is the Average Length of a Menstrual Period Cycle calculated?
Average Length of a Menstrual Period Cycle is calculated by entering the date of the first day of your Last Menstrual Period (LMP). This is done after a close observation of your menstrual periods. The LMP of every month is counted and thus you arrive at the average length of a menstrual period cycle.
