All of you women out there will be able to relate to this nightmare or something similar at some point in your life – you are wearing your favorite new white cut off shorts and are out for a picnic on a nice summer day and suddenly your period just begins. Yes, you can put on a tampon quickly but are still afraid that you might stain your shorts. So you don’t get involved in any picnic activity and just sit still in a corner and sulk because your picnic is ruined and the sun is not going to shine exactly like this again, at least in this season.
Or how about the annoying day when your period begins in the middle of an important business meeting and you cannot even rush to the powder room to put on a tampon because your boss is in the middle of a presentation. You just have to wait and hope and pray that it does not turn into a crime scene down there. Disturbing? Check. Embarrassing? Double check.
Also, the classic case of planning that perfect date much in advance and getting a period on the big day and suffering from cramps throughout the date. It is horrible to get a period when you least expect it. But no matter how much you blame the erratic nature of periods, the fact is that you can indeed lose tract of the dates because of your busy lives. The solution to knowing when your period will begin is Period Tracker – the Android app that never lets your period take you by surprise.
All you need to do is press a button at the start of every month and it logs your dates and calculates the average of your past 3 months’ menstrual cycles to predict the start date of your next period. You can view your current as well as your future dates along with your ovulation and fertile days, as well as your moods and your symptoms in a simple month-view calendar.
It contains features like:
– Take daily notes of moods, symptoms, and intimacy.
– Easily view the number of days until next period or number of days late.
– Know when you’re fertile with flowers that show on your home screen during your predicted ovulation and eight day “fertile window.”
However, this app cannot be used as a sure shot method to prevent unwanted pregnancies because the Period Tracker period and fertility periods may not be a hundred percent accurate. The accuracy depends on how regular one’s cycle length is, when one actually ovulates during the cycle, and how many periods have been logged in the app. Anxiety, stress, diet, nutrition, exercise, environment, medications, age and other factors can also affect one’s cycle from month to month.
Therefore, it is advisable to use this app just to track your periods instead of depending entirely on it to avoid a pregnancy, then you could be in for a surprise. Apart from that, Period Tracker is an amazing app that will make sure you know the exact date of your period and you will never be ambushed again!
