Which app should I choose to track my menstrual cycles?

Whether you are looking to better understand your menstrual cycles, to know the dates of your periods, to avoid pregnancy or on the contrary to conceive a baby: menstrual cycle tracking applications can help you. They allow you to calculate the length of your menstrual cycles, anticipate the next occurrence of your period, monitor the symptoms of your premenstrual syndrome or even know the days of fertility. However, period tracking applications are becoming more and more numerous and some require payment: choosing your menstrual cycle tracking application is becoming more and more complicated. In this article, we offer you a comparison of applications to track your menstrual cycles so that you can choose your application according to your needs.


Clue ❤️❤️❤️

The Clue application is, with Flo Health which we present to you just after, the spearhead of the menstrual cycle monitoring application. It is the most famous and internationally distributed application. Available on iOS and Android.

helloclue tracking app


Our opinion on Clue

The Clue application is a very complete application whether for the purpose of tracking your menstrual cycle or for conceiving. It does not include pregnancy monitoring. Its symptom monitoring is rich and particularly easy to access: this is really its strong point. The application offers a premium version to benefit from a more precise analysis of your cycle at €9.99/month but the latter is not obligatory to benefit from the application's functionalities. We can also regret that the application puts a lot of emphasis on its premium version.

Its features

  • French language 🇫🇷
  • Cycle tracking
  • Ovulation tracking
  • Symptom tracking
  • Calendar
  • Advice and exchanges
  • Analysis (Clue Plus offer)

Its plus: The monitoring of symptoms throughout the menstrual cycle is very well done and the diversity of symptoms is important. In the premium version, it is possible to have analysis and prediction of symptoms.

Price: €9.99 / month or €39.99 / year (price which makes it the most expensive application on this list)

Download the Clue app on iOS or Android .


Flo Health ❤️❤️❤️

Like Clue, Flo Health is a widely recognized app . It is offered by an independent company, Flo, created in 2015 of which this is the main activity. Available on the web, iOS and Android.

flo health app

Our opinion on Flo Health

The Flo Health application is a rich application whether it is for the purpose of following your menstrual cycle, to conceive or to monitor your pregnancy. Its monitoring is intended to be holistic, going beyond the “simple” problem of monitoring periods (health, sport, diet, etc.), which can make it intrusive and more complicated to use. We like its digital assistant which allows you to ask questions – although it in no way replaces a healthcare professional. The application offers a premium version to benefit from a more precise analysis of your cycle at €32.99/year but the latter is not obligatory to benefit from the application's functionalities.

Its features

  • French language 🇫🇷
  • Cycle tracking
  • Ovulation tracking
  • Pregnancy monitoring
  • Symptom tracking
  • Calendar
  • Advice and exchanges

Its plus: The application offers a digital assistant which answers all your questions in real time. Although it does not replace a health professional who is aware of your medical situation, it can allow you to reassure yourself in the moment and refer you to a professional if necessary.

Price: €32.99 / year

Ovia ❤️❤️(❤️)

Ovia is a company that offers applications for the intimate monitoring of women. It offers two distinct applications: one focused on cycle monitoring (Fertility, Cycle, Health) and the other on pregnancy monitoring (Pregnancy & baby tracker). We will discuss these two applications in this test. Available on iOS and Android.

ovia health app pregnancy monitoring


Our opinion on Ovia

The Ovia applications are two very complete applications for tracking your menstrual cycle, conceiving (Fertility, Cycle, Health) and monitoring your pregnancy (Pregnancy & baby tracker) . Their monitoring is mainly focused on health and symptom monitoring: the monitoring is so precise that it can worry and exceed – it all depends on what you are looking for for your application. We like the fact that the application (Fertility, Cycle, Health) has developed a specific area for monitoring menopause. The application is completely free. Small downside: the application is not available in French which can pose a problem when describing your symptoms (this is what removes a ❤️).

Its features

  • Cycle tracking
  • Ovulation tracking
  • Pregnancy monitoring
  • Menopause monitoring
  • Symptom tracking
  • Calendar
  • Advice and exchanges

Its plus: The application has developed a real offer linked to menopause: monitoring of symptoms in the app, suggestion of content and specific advice. It's the first app that has this angle and it's worth highlighting!

Price: Free

Download the Ovia Fertility, cycle, health app on iOS or Android .


Period Tracker (P Tracker) ❤️(❤️)

Period tracker is a menstrual cycle tracking application developed by the company Tampax, specializing in menstrual protection. Available on iOS and Android.


Our opinion on Period Tracker

The Period Tracker application is a simplified application, specialized in monitoring your menstrual cycle and to assist conception. It has the advantage of being limited in options but still allows you to monitor your symptoms and your fertility windows. Developed by Tampax, its strong point is a points system: the more you use the application, the more you participate in donations for menstrual poverty. The application is completely free. Small downside: the application is not available in French (this is what removes a ❤️).

Its features

  • Cycle tracking
  • Ovulation tracking
  • Symptom tracking
  • Calendar

Its plus: We like the points system which invites you to use the application regularly and allows you to push Tampax to make donations for menstruating people in situations of menstrual poverty. It’s clearly a brand communication action but the idea is good!

MyCalendar ❤️(❤️)

MyCalendar is a very simple period tracking app developed by an independent company. Available on iOS and Android.


Our opinion on MyCalendar

The MyCalendar application is an application with a simple ambition: to facilitate the monitoring of your menstrual cycle and to support a design project. Immersed in a delicate design based on flowers and roses, it offers very few options but allows you to follow your cycles, your symptoms and your ovulation. Practical feature of the application: it allows you to program your Pill reminder. The application is completely free. Small downside: the application is not available in French (this is what removes a ❤️).

Its features

  • Cycle tracking
  • Ovulation tracking
  • Symptom tracking
  • Calendar

Its plus: Very simple, the functionality which allows you to program your reminder allows you to bring together all these questions within a single app. We like it!

Price: Free

Download the MyCalendar app on iOS or Android .


Natural Cycles (❤️)

Natural Cycles is an application offered by a company that offers connected or unconnected products to track ovulation, for hormone-free contraception or as part of a conception project. Available on iOS and Android.


Our opinion on Natural Cycles

The Natural Cycles app is not a cycle tracking app per se. It is an application intended to be used to monitor connected products offered by the brand to monitor ovulation (bracelets and basal thermometers). More than entering constants, it is more about determining your fertility window. If the application seems interesting for tracking your ovulation for the purpose of conception, especially if your cycle is not regular , we cannot recommend it for contraceptive purposes. Even more, the company's communication prevents us from rating this application better: the condom and the pill are safer than contraception based on body temperature alone (contrary to what the company claims). Small downside: the application is not available in French (this is what removes a ❤️).

Its features

  • Cycle tracking
  • Ovulation tracking
  • Calendar

Its plus: Its connection with the brand's connected products can help you determine your ovulation with a view to conception.

Price: Free

FAQs


Can menstrual tracking apps scale?

Menstrual tracking applications are intended to adapt to your menstrual cycle.

They are naturally aligned with a menstrual cycle lasting 28 days when you start using them because that is the average length of menstrual cycles. Then, based on the data and information you enter into the application, it adapts. After a few months, if you have a regular cycle, it will give you the day of your ovulation and the first day of your period whether your cycle lasts 24 or 38 days.

Please note: the period tracking application will have more difficulty being precise in its predictions if you have variations in the length of your cycle (beyond 2-3 days). In this case, you can rely on your symptoms to get an idea of ​​when your first day of period will occur (if you are able to determine the day of your ovulation, your period will generally start 14 days later).


Why use a menstrual cycle tracking app?

Using a menstrual cycle tracking application is useful for:

  • Take away the mental burden: it's easy to record the occurrence of your cycles in the application, especially since you always have your phone with you. This is convenient whether your goal is to track your cycle or start a baby project. You will be able to consult a doctor with all of your information on your phone without worrying;
  • Anticipate your next cycle: tracking applications adapt to your cycle. They learn: after a few cycles, they know your menstrual cycle and allow you to anticipate at a glance when your next ovulation / your next cycle will take place.l
  • Record your symptoms: do you regularly feel a pinch in the middle of your cycle? Are your breasts heavy? Are you feeling irascible? A glance at your period tracking app lets you know where you are in your cycle and can help you gain perspective by reminding yourself that these symptoms are recurring for you!

Is it safe to use a cycle tracking app for contraception?

No. While a menstrual cycle tracking app will allow you to have a clear idea of ​​your fertile window and the days during which you are more likely to get pregnant , it can be wrong - especially if your cycle is irregular or there is a one-off variation, linked to a stressful situation, for example. Also, we do not recommend that you use a menstrual cycle tracking application as contraception.
