I am not sure where to ask this, but This is my first month using the EB's ovulation app (I was using others but didn't like them) but just wondering if there is a way to change the time on it??? My period isn't due till tomorrow but at midday today I got a notification saying period due today but shouldn't I receive this notification at midnight tonight not at midday the day before?? and it was the same with the ovulation notification too???

So if this is not the place to ask just thought there might be a few people in here using this app original.gif

It most likely is working off doctor timing - see if you get AF before midday that that is day 1, but after midday and the next day is day one. So in theory your period should arrive anytime between midday the day before and midday of the day you expect it.

I'm guessing they then used the same timing for ovulation as well which is why it alerts you at midday the day before because that is actually the 'start' of the day.

BTW they do the same with babies age in hospital after birth, baby before midday is day one the day born, whereas a baby born after midday is day one the next day - I remember asking about this as my first was born at 2am whereas my second was 7pm. I know about the timing of Af as well from all the clinics I have been to and treatment I was given over the years.
