JX Ovulation Calendar

Quick start

When you run the program for the first time, you will see this window:

Since no menstrual cycle parameters have been set, the ovulation calendar will not display critical or fertile days. You can set these parameters in the cycle parameters window (with the button on the toolbar or with the button in the "Menstrual Cycle Parameters" section in the main window) or individually via the "Cycle" item on the main menu. You must enter the following three parameters: your last menstrual cycle's first day, menstrual cycle's average length, and the luteal phase length (if unknown, you may leave the 14 days value as that is the most common value).

Next, set your goal, which may be one of the following:

  • Avoid pregnancy.
  • Conceive.
  • Conceive (girl desired).
  • Conceive (boy desired).

You can set your goal by selecting one on the drop-down list in the "My Goal" section or via the "Goal" menu item.

Once you have set your menstrual cycle parameters and goal, the ovulation calendar in the main window will display state for each day:

You can now read comments and detailed information for each day by clicking on the desired cell on the calendar. The information window at the right will display the medical comment and recommendation for selected day. Current cycle’s parameters for the selected day are displayed there as well.

You can also add a note for the date by clicking on the Add note... button and entering the text in the editor window that appears:

After that's done, the note will appear in the main window:

Now you can print the current month calendar. To print current month instantly, click the button on the toolbar or select the "File/Print" item on the menu. You can also open the preview window and edit printing settings (by clicking the button on the toolbar or selecting the "File/Preview..." item on the menu):

Click on the ovulation calendar rectangle; this will draw 8 little square dots around the calendar, which allow you to resize the fertility calendar. Click on the bottom right dot and hold the mouse button down, drag that dot to change the size to desired and then let the mouse button go. Disable the legend flag (at the window's bottom) unless we need it. The window will look like this:
