Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you to check out this blog entry that I made some years back.  The cycle still works the same way!

ALSO, you might want to check out the tracker for the menstrual cycle:
http://www.medhelp.org/user_trackers/list/603463
just scroll down to the "m's" and it is under menstrual cycle trackers.

Hope this helps!
