How do I create a JQL query to capture issues created in the previous month

I need to query for the total number of issues created for the previous month.  For example, if I want to know the total new issues created during the month of August and it is already September, how can I do this with a function so I don't have to modify the query every time it is run?  I can't use startOfMonth() or endOfMonth() since it will return the issues created in October instead of September unless there is a way to use a set back that will give me the previous month.

try created >= startOfMonth(-1M) and created  <= startOfMonth()

I'm on Cloud Confluence ... can this be done in a Confluence Search URL? My trail and error has only led to error.... Eg."XXXX"+and+lastmodified+<%3D+startOfMonth%28-12M%29+and+type+%3D+"page"

Thanks that did the trick.  I tried several combinations of that function, just not that one.  Thanks
