Tracking your periods doesn’t have to be stressful or time-consuming. Here are the top best 7 period tracker apps that you should try! Check ’em out!
Hey gorgeous! I have this habit of forgetting my periods date like every freaking month. And that leaves me confused about my plans, my mood swings and what not! Being a woman ain’t easy at all. But womanhood is a beautiful creation of nature. So we may whine about menstrual cycle but it’s a part of our lives now and we have to accept it. Yeah! What else can we do?!
Apart from the cramps, cravings and mood swings, I’m sure most of you like me struggle to keep a track of period schedule. In high school, I used to manually keep a track every month. I had a separate calendar and called it menstrual calculator.
Period Tracker Apps
But the monthly info wasn’t enough for the period predictor. But when I almost gave up, technology helped me through it. There are apps for period tracker for women. Yay! I was introduced to online period calendar through a friend. And since then I don’t worry about my dates for the coming months. Also, the data is stored and can come handy when I’m visiting my gynecologist. Of course, the predictions may not be 100% accurate and dates may vary slightly but at least you will know the approximates. It’s sometime +1 or-1 day.
So, I have made a list of the best 7 best period tracker apps to make your cycle easy-peasy. Let’s check out!
1. P Tracker
This app is my personal favorite. I have been using this app for the past one year. You just have to press start at the start of your period every month. It takes the average of the past three months period and predicts the future months period dates. You can view your ovulation and fertile days, too! The one thing I totally love about this app is you can make a note of your moods, weight and write your thoughts. How cool is that?! After a few months, you can actually track your cycle and understand your body better!
2. Pink Pad
This period and ovulation tracker app has a 4.5 stars rating on play store. When I first looked into this app I felt weird. It’s more like a social networking site. So I wasn’t sure. But when I researched and read the reviews, I was convinced. It’s a platform where you can be benefited with health and fitness tips. Now I’m thinking to try it! They have amazing features like cervical symptoms tracking, fertile and ovulation day prediction, health journal and much more. But a user mentioned in her review that after changing her phone, her data got lost inspite of saving it. I think with so many features, they should work on this minor issue.
3. My Calendar
The period tracker is similar to other apps and you can see the data in the homepage calendar. So with a glance, you will know your cycle. There are reminders that help you to be prepared for the upcoming periods. And you can even password lock your calendar. But I don’t know why someone will want to peep into my period tracker. But anyway that’s an added feature. Also, the data can be restored easily with this app.
