AT what time of the month do you get your period?

Ok, I know that on a 28 day cycle we eventually will go from the third week to the second week in time.... but generally, whats the week that you start.?

Um, being as my current cycle is every 39 days, I couldn't really vote.
I have PCOS and I have NEVER had a regular cycle every month, not from the very beginning. I used to have cycles that were about 2 months long and then I started going longer and longer and went a full year without a period when I was 21. Then I got the PCOS dx and went on BCP which gave me a "fake" 28-day cycle for a few years, then got off before TTC and watched my cycles go from 30 days to 39 over a few months and they stayed fairly stable at 39 days for quite a few cycles. Metformin gave me the short (Day 22 ovulation) cycle in which my DD was conceived, and I have had PPAF 2x, 39 days apart just like it was before. And my fertility signs show that this current cycle will be around 39 days as well. I need to get back on Metformin to shorten my cycles.

More than you wanted to know.

I did not think about mamas who do not get their cycle or mamas that have cycle a few times a year... erhrhr, how do you change a poll?

My cycles are every 24-27 days long. I get mine on average the first or second week of the month. This month though, I will get AF Saturday or Sunday, so the end of the month (almost beginning!).

It's been the first week of the month for me and dd a few days behind lately, but I know it does shift because we don't have perfect 28 day cycles. I'm more aware of and comfortable with when it gets in sync with the moon; af tends to come when the moon is full.

dd and I have always been in sync with each other, even when she spent a year living 3,000 miles away.
