Tracking your period is something you should be doing from the time you get your first period until you no longer have one. It is not only helpful in planning important dates (say a wedding) but it’s also handy to have for your daily schedule (so you aren’t planning a beach trip on your heaviest days).
It is a great asset to have when you go to the doctor in case he/she can spot something concerning or just to know the exact date of your last period because they always ask and how many of us know off the top of our heads??? And if you are trying to get pregnant, a period calendar helps you track your fertile days every month.
With a period tracker, you can see at a glance when to expect your next menstrual cycle, how frequent/infrequent your periods are, and can help you mentally prepare for that pre-period week when you are most likely to experience mood swings and other not-so-pleasant symptoms.
As you can see, having a period tracker is a really great asset and one that every woman, young and old, should have on hand. Since it’s a printable calendar, you can print it out every year for all the ladies in your home and stay ahead of future periods so you aren’t left without supplies or find your plans inconvenienced.
