These are a few of my favorite apps that I have used to track periods, fertile window, ovulation, symptoms and more! Here are the pros and cons of the different apps that I used to help us get pregnant:
1. The “overview” page is very clear on the information that most women want to see. It shows:
a. how many days until your next period & when your next period is predicted to start
b. how many days until your fertile window and the days your fertile window are
c. and the chance of pregnancy for that day
2. The calendar has a variety of details you can use to record (i.e. flow, spotting, intimate, mood, symptoms..).
3. You can set reminders when your period or fertile window is coming so you are prepared in advance.
1. Some of the emotions selections are off.
2. Old information does not merge into the newer update.
Period Tracker Lite
1. Can type in notes (I like to type in information that may not have a selection in the app).
2. The full calendar clearly shows period timing, fertile week, ovulation date and intimacy.
3. There are log/charts that show cycle length between each month which is helpful when trying to track ovulation.
1. The full version costs you.
2. The home page is not as descriptive (only shows projected start date of period and how many days left). The branch will flower when it is your fertile week.
1. Home page is visually pleasing. Easy to see where you are at in your cycle.
2. Data is easy to input (bleeding, pain, emotions..)
3. It will gather information from previous months when you enter data and let you know if there are similarities/differences.
1. Calendar information is not as clear as the other apps.
Let me tell you, these apps have helped me identify my fertile week and also report back information to my doctors. I can look back and see what day I started my period, when I had a headache, what my discharge was like at a certain point in the month…I will definitely continue using this tool as we are trying to conceive again.
