Q&A Index > Irregular Cycles and Predictions
My predicted periods and fertile days are all over the place. What is causing this?
Irregular cycles will cause your predictions to spread. In other words, you will see multiple days marked as the possible start of your periods and longer periods of predicted fertile days. This is not a malfunction; it is simply the consequence of the irregularity in your cycle characteristics.
You need to rule out any technical issue with your data entry first. For that just look at your cycle list and identify the cycles that are outside of your usual pattern or cycles with incorrect data. You may choose to delte these cycles or exclude them from your stats. Make sure to uncheck the stats box for cycles involving pregnancy or miscarriage or cycles that were influenced by external causes.
Some conditions such as Poly-Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) or perimenauposal symptoms may also cause irregular cycles.
