How do I work out when my period should be due

Hi

From what I can guess I have a 28 day cycle. If this is right how would I work out my next period? I was supposed to have it on the 26th may, but my last 'period' (didnt feel like it was only 2 days and light) was actually the 1st June. So would I calculate from when the period actually arrived meaning the 28th of this month, or from the 26th when it should of came, meaning
which would give the 23rd?

Also can cycle length change? From thinking back to past periods Im pretty sure I always mostly have 28 day cycles cos like I said Ive never been late until recently. Thanks for the help again guys.

Hows everyone btw any good news?

I'd go by the June 1st date as your LMP.  Even if it was light, it was something.

What you wrote was unclear.  You said "So would I calculate from when the period actually arrived meaning the 28th of this month, or from the 26th when it should of came".

Your LMP means the first day of your last menstrual period.  Did your period start the 28th of May, or June 1st?

Who is this, I meant should I count the day it should come or actually did come which you have all kindly answered. I know it sounds like it should make sence as its LMP but I just wanted to be 100% sure.
