Does anyone use a period tracking app? I recently downloaded an app and found is great for tracking. What one do you recommend.

Following for suggestions - I'm wondering whether I'm peri-menopausal and tracking wouldn't be a bad idea.

Garmin has updated their app to include period tracking, so I just use that.

Period Tracker. It's free, can record heaps of symptoms if you want. Been going for at least 8 years, also have a conceive and pregnancy function.

I use Ovia, and it’s got lots of helpful features.

I noticed a lot of the watches had this feature in their advertising.

I just use the Apple Health app. It tracks cycles, spotting and other symptoms.

I like Ovia. I’ve also used Flo and Glow in the past.

I use kindara. 

but that’s for TTC. or avoiding.  

I believe google calendar also has the ability to track. 

 I wonder if there is a better peri menopausal app? I would be more interested in temping if I thought I was near menopause as it would be much more telling to know if you are ovulating or not   And temping is this easiest way to know you have you ovulated  besides bloods every month

I used Period Tracker until I got a Fitbit which also has period tracking on the app. I find the Fitbit one to be more accurate in predictions, although I still found PT good too. I have a ridiculously short cycle so it was helpful to get a handle on that, and show my GP.

Period tracker was the app I downloaded. Seems ok.

I just use this too. I find it has been pretty good on the prediction - until I had. 57 day cycle! Given I’ve always been 28 days like clockwork I definitely think I’m peri menopausal.

I use Period Tracker - the green flower icon one. I really just use it to remember the days I have my period as I thought peri-menopause was making my periods irregular but actually it was just my sense of time was off! I like how it gives me a heads up that it's coming as well, although my body generally does that just before the notification anyway.

Another vote for period tracker app. Super easy to use and handy to see how long on average my cycles are.

Clue, been using it for about 18 months.  I'm 52 and wasn't allowed to have my injection anymore once I was 50. I'm like clockwork still and my periods and ovulation are agony. 

I had the rod put in a few months ago after thinking about it for a while and so far no period, it's wonderful.  That's the only reason I had the injection as I'm not in a relationship. 

Still using clue but thinking I won't need it soon.

Following, I am 45 and have regular timed periods but I want to track them as over a day they can be light and heavy then back again (or any mix of them), I am have been perimenopausal my specialist told me but  a month or so ago I had another lot of blood tests and I am not menopausal at all  but have all the symptoms!

I use Life but I don’t pay for any of the features, so it’s literally just to track length of cycle. I don’t use it for monitoring symptoms or anything else.

I think this is why temping may help. I suspect the difference between heavy vs light is to do with which month you are ovulation.
