So, what exactly does CD mean? I know, kinda silly! So, how does a "normal" cycle go? Like on what day of a standard cycle would you ovulate, begin menstruation, etc?? Thanks!!
Thank you Natasha for the beautiful siggy!

CD means cycle day. As far as the questions about ovulation, menstruation, etc. "typical" from what doctors will tell you is your cycle is 28 days long, day 1 being the day your period starts and that ovulation occurs on day 14. I'm sure most everyone here will tell you that's pretty off, as it really varies from woman to woman. I'm reading Taking Charge of Your Fertility and it has sooo much helpful information - definitely recommend it!

Ditto Ashely. "Typical" cycles range between 21-35 days long and the time of ovulation can fluctuate from cycle to cycle, even if the overall length remains consistent. That's why "Rhythm" or "Calender" Methods are less reliable than modern NFP that goes by daily evidence instead of predictions.

I always thought I was fairly typical since I had like a 28 day cycle for a long time, and then I found out my leutal phase was wrong for typical. So typical cycle length still doesn't mean typical cycle. The question is more what is typical for you, not as far as length, but as symptoms.

For me, my cycles run about 26-30 days usually. My ovulation dates (based on OPK's) usually run anywhere between CD13-16. My LP runs between 13-15 days.

PM to see if I am available to make a siggy - decisions will be made on a case by case basis.
