Red tide! Red tide! Those days of the month are gradually becoming less tabu in our society. A body function that should be socially accepted but that seems to cause embarrassment leading many women to hide it. But the truth is that it's totally natural so there's no need get suffocated about. Mobile app developers seem to have viewed a business chance in this market and have started creating tools to manage the period in a complete manner. Flo Period & Ovulation Tracker is just one of them.
Schedule reminders and receive notifications about your period, ovulation, contraceptives, and other pills.
You can find similar programs for your PC but the most comfortable thing to control your period is to always have all your data on your mobile device. To start off, you'll have to download and install the APK file from Google Play. Once you open the app, the next thing to do is input your details as truthfully as possible in order to help Flo to learn automatically and predict your conditions with the utmost accuracy. Those details include:
- Height and weight.
- Beginning of your last period.
- Average length of your periods.
- Whether your intention is to get pregnant or not.
Never had it been so easy to follow all your periods.
Then, Flo will create a calendar with your periods, your most fertile days, your ovulation days... And also the days with the highest probability of getting pregnant, if that's what you're looking for. Thus, you'll be able to keep a complete history of your cycles, symptoms, create graphics with data, schedule reminds and notifications about your periods and contraceptives, etc. And if you want to have a baby, you can even monitor your basal temperature and the results of your pregnancy tests.
Much more than a period calendar
The difference between Flor and other similar applications is that you can include a vast amount of information. Anything you can imagine about your periods can be registered with this tool. All the latter, divided into these menus:
- Lifestyle: weight, sleep, nutrition, steps, distance, workouts, and intake of water.
- Sex and sexual desire: indicate whether you've had sex or not, with protection or without it, what kind of sexual desire you're experimenting and whether you've masturbated.
- How do you feel? Neutral, happy, frisky, moody, angry, sad or a panic attack.
- Register your symptoms: indicate if yo feel pain, sensitive breasts, headache, acne, backache, feeling sick, tired or swollen.
- Register your vaginal discharge: no discharge, sticky, creamy, watery or unusual.
- Others: trips, stress, illness or wounds.
- Notes: here you can write down whatever you want if it doesn't fit into any of the previous sections.
So it looks like Flo is going to end up with more data than the FBI, the CIA, and the NSA altogether. It also offers us a pedometer, although it doesn't work very well, and the possibility to customize the app with different designs and wallpapers. And if we weren't giving it enough information, we can also sync it to our Google Fit account and enable Fitbit. All for the sake of registering your periods.
