Women, put down your pencils and calendars! Whether you are trying to conceive or trying to avoid conceiving, keeping track of your period can be a pain. In today’s world of technological advances….there’s an app for that! Gone are the days of trying to (incorrectly) guess the date of your last period. Precise dates are essential to your well being and can help you identify changes and issues with your cycle.
So ladies, pick up your phone to track your period. IPeriod is a free app to track not only your cycle, but details of it as well. Having a visual record can be helpful, especially for women who have irregular periods or problems and need to report back to your doctor.
Many women enjoy this app for all of the options available. There is a place to keep track of the dates, equipped with reminders. You will be notified when your first day of your cycle is coming as well as a reminder for self breast examinations. You have the option to include symptoms such as mood, bloating, appetite, cramping and more. Another useful tool in this app is predicting ovulation dates if you are trying to conceive and a place to record “love connections”.
To get started all you need to do is input your last two cycles and it will calculate future dates for you. IPeriod allows you to color code and make notations so that it's easy to look back and compare prior cycles. The app is discretely labeled as “IP Free” on your phone so there is no indication of what it is if you are shy about such things.Having a period is annoying enough. No need to struggle keeping track of periods when there's an app that can do it for you!
