cycle - a calendar for women




Cycle is a calendar program for women. Given a cycle length or statistics for several
periods, it can calculate the days until menstruation, the days of "safe" sex, the fertile
period, and the days to ovulations, and define the d.o.b. (date of birth) of a child. It
allows the user to write notes and helps to supervise the reception of hormonal
contraceptive tablets.


The program is capable of:

possible with the calendar method)

Date of a birth of the child is counted from the beginning of last menstruation (in
obstetrics are accepted 40 weeks). This date is corrected with the duration of a cycle
(are subtracted or added same number of days that a cycle differs from 28 days). Is

- Beginning of following menstruation - pink cells

Cycle duration is set in options or is calculated an average of last six periods.

interruption every day of 28. In the program, is marked only day of reception of each
