Not everyone has a set schedule for their period.  Yours just might be irregular.

Your period comes a fixed 12-14 days after ovulation. Ovulation can come any time it wants (although it typically happens around day 14), and can be delayed by sleep disruptions, stress, workouts, etc. So to predict when you will get your period you have to track your ovulation date, and then you will know that in 2 weeks you will get your period. You can track ovulation by using the FAM method with a basal body thermometer, or you can buy an ovulation predictor kit at the drugstore.

I 2nd the previous posters.  You’re supposed to count day 1 of the next cycle on your first day having your period.  (I was confused and thought my cycle from the end of my period to the next end, but it’s actually beginning to beginnning.)  Also, my cycle has fluctuated 28 days to 40 days in the last six months with my average being around 34 or 35 days!

If you’re interested in fertility awareness method or natural family planning, there are a lot of resources out there!  I strongly recommend the book, Taking Charge of Your Fertility.

i have been using this site called my monthly cycles and they are pretty accurate. i just use their period calendar and been keeping track through that. maybe this is something you can also use. you can input the dates you already have and then do the calculations. hope this works for you.
