Yes that is true if a woman has a 28 day cycle from the start of one period to the start of the next. If a woman has a cycle length of 29 days, it would be the 30th. If a cycle length of 30 days, it would be October 1st, etc.

I had the injection done last year to stop baby's and I stop last year is it out of my body yet
Expert:  Dr. C. replied 2 years ago.
After Depo-Provera injection, it can take up to 18 months to get fertility back. But this depends on how many shots were given. The more shots, the longer it takes. If just 1 or 2 shots, it's gone by 1 year.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I had 1 or 2 shots in 2014 but last October I got my period only for one day and then I got my period every other month but now I get my period every month nowDoes this mean I got my fertility back? Thanks you been so helpful
Expert:  Dr. C. replied 2 years ago.
If just 1=2 shots, fertility is certainly back to baseline by 1 year. If the period is every month, it's a sign of ovulation every month. But there are many possible causes of trouble getting pregnant. So time to get a local expert involved.

take
Expert:  Dr. C. replied 2 years ago.
Well you need figure out if you need a referral from your regular doctor or can book an appointment directly with the fertility specialist. It's very unlikely you'll be able to get in tomorrow.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
does your doctor have to referral u
Expert:  Dr. C. replied 2 years ago.
It depends on your insurance situation. Sometimes yes but other times patients can "self-refer". You need to check with your insurance about it.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
what do u mean
Expert:  Dr. C. replied 2 years ago.
I believe you live in the UK? In the UK you have to see your assigned doctor first. They will then place a referral for you for a fertility specialist once you've explained the problem to them and they feel they have done everything that they are qualified to do to help first.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I book a appointment tomorrow then
Expert:  Dr. C. replied 2 years ago.
Ok, good luck.
