Generally, a normal menstrual cycle is said to be around 25 to 38 days, and the default value in Konotoki is set to 28 days. Please refer to your past menstrual cycles and adjust the number of days accordingly.

Adjust the number of days and tap the [Save] button at the bottom of the screen to enter your expected menstrual cycle.

Konotoki predicts your chances of pregnancy based on the Ogino ovulation prediction method. Konotoki predicts the chances of pregnancy if sexual intercourse takes place in line with the predictions, but it does not guarantee pregnancy or prevention of pregnancy. Please use it only as a guide.
The Ogino method is a calculation method that was announced by Kyusaku Ogino, an obstetrician and gynecologist, in 1942 to calculate the days when it is easy to get pregnant and the days when it is difficult to get pregnant by calculating backwards from the estimated starting date of the next period. The theory is that by calculating the time of ovulation (ovulation date) plus the sperm survival period of around 3 days, it is possible to determine the days when you are more likely or less likely to conceive. However, as the Ogino method predicts the ovulation date through calculations based on the starting date of your most recent period and your average menstrual cycle, it may not always be possible to determine the exact day if your menstrual cycle is irregular. Please understand that the predictions of the Ogino method are not 100% accurate, and only use it as a guide.
A menstrual cycle is the number of days from the starting date of your last period to the date right before your next period.
