Do this by adding up the number of days ineachcycle. Then divide this number by the numberofcycles (aka the number of times you've hadyourperiod) since counting. This will give you theaveragenumber of days between each period, or youraverage cyclelength.

Correspondingly, how do I figure out my average cycle length?

The answer is the date of the first day of yourlastperiod (not the day it ended). Ex.= February 2nd. Tofigureout how long your cycle is, start atcycle day 1of your last menstrual cycle and begincounting(Cycle day 1,2,3,4 and so forth). The length=thelast cycle day before you startedbleedingagain.

Likewise, how do you calculate when your next period will be? Add up the number of days, divide by 4 months, andyouget an average of 30 days. With that number, you can predictthefirst day of your next period when adding 30 days tothelast. So, if my last period started on February 2, I add30days and come up with March 4 for the first day of mynextperiod.
