HI! Well my question is the following. I don't quite know how to count. If i got My period on february the 10th and it lasted for about a week or a bit more than that.I thought it would be coming on the 10th this month since i got it last month on the 10th. Am i wrong in this?? How am i supposed to count when is my next period gonna come ? Let's say i started on the 10th and i ended on the 19th. Do i count 28 days from the 19th ??

Well, here's the problem: more than likely, your period isn't going to show up on exactly the same day every month. Our cycles, especially when we're young, tend to vary, and even those of us with the most normal periods can experience some funkiness every once in a while.
What you're doing is correct, but you will probably find your period doesn't always show on the day you think it should. Better to, if you just want an idea of when it'll come, to mark the days you menstruate on a calender, and then count forwards about a month or so. That'll give you a general idea of when to expect your period. (Although, you may find that your average cycle isn't 28 days, but 30 or 33. Those are normal, too)
