Amanda - the day you start your period is Cycle Day 1 and it goes up from there! So the second day is CD2, etc., until you get to the end of your cycle. Then the day you start your next period, it's Cycle Day 1 again. Hope that helps!

Hey Judy! Thanks for posting this, I'm about to share it with someone on here, but I realized that you have "LH-Hormone detected by the OPK"...LH is luteinizing hormone so it would probably be helpful to add the actual name since that's what most people are saying when they use LH.

(Btw, I think this is the best list anyone has made so far on JM, the rest aren't as complete!)

Thanks Michelle, I added that.

You're welcome Christina.

By the way I can't take credit for this list, I took it from another board
