7 Menstrual Apps That’ll Make Tracking Your Period a Breeze

Let’s be honest: Getting a surprise visit from Aunt Flow is the *absolute* worst. But even though we know that tracking our cycle is essential, we’re more than a little fed up with manually crunching the numbers in our paper planner to determine when we have to stock up on tampons and cranberry juice. That’s why when we heard about how convenient period tracking apps are, we knew we had to try them for ourselves. So we’re tossing out our old-school ways and highlighting seven period tracking apps that just might save our white jeans and good panties for good.

1. Cycles: Tracking your period, ovulation, and menstruation symptoms is super simple with this girlboss-approved app. Not only does it translate your cycle into a color-coded graph, but it also has one surprise feature that we absolutely *love* — the ability to share your cycle and data with your partner or loved one. Three cheers for ending period stigma!

DL It: Free on iOS

2. Spot On: Created by Planned Parenthood, this cool app was designed specifically to make it super convenient to keep tabs on your period. You can also track your birth control straight from the app (whether you use the pill, IUD, ring, implant, shot, or patch) and receive discrete reminders for your specific method.

3. Clue: This no-fuss period tracker app is based on real science. With over 30 tracking categories including cramps, sleep, and cravings, you’ll be able to track your symptoms and cycle easily (without being annoyed by cliché butterflies or frilly flower backgrounds). Plus, the more you use it, the smarter it gets at predicting your period.

4. Period Tracker: Despite its name, this app is *way* more than just a period tracker. Yes, this awesome menstruation app allows users to track their period and symptoms on an easy-to-read calendar, but it also gives them the ability to share tips and advice about all things periods on their unique community forums.

5. Life Period Tracker: This design-savvy period app lets you manage your cycle, predict your fertile days, and track just about everything when it comes to your period. As an added perk, you don’t need to enter your email address to sign up (AKA you can rest assured that your personal health data will not be sold or shared).

6. Eve: This cool women’s health app combines everything we love about period trackers with a mountain of sexual health info. Along with tracking and predicting your cycle, this free-to-download app gets you access to an epic community of sex-positive ladies and trusted information on all things birth control and sex.
