In the past I've tracked my menstrual cycle by using BellaBeat, LadyComp and a paper calendar.
BellaBeat is an app with wearable jewelry that tracks sleep, meditation, stress, fitness patterns, and your cycle.
LadyComp is a small computer with data from over 900,00 women's cycles, and is a wonderful way to track fertility through temperature — without taking birth control that alters your hormones.
Paper calendars are easy, and technology-free, but can become difficult to keep up with, and take up space.
5 Reasons to Love the MyFLO App
- MyFLO focuses primarily on menstrual cycles, and provides tips to balance hormones through an easy-to-use, beautiful, and intuitive interface.
- It is created by a woman that has deep knowledge in women's hormones and cycles — I trust the information.
- It helps you get in sync with your body by acknowledging the 4 phases of your cycle — Follicular, Ovulation, Luteal, Menstrual. It pinpoints the length of each phase, how hormones effect focus, what exercise and foods best supports the body, and provides tips for a healthy sex drive.
- It acknowledges symptoms — like Heavy Cramps, Light Cramps, Medium Cramps, and Mid-Cycle Spotting through easy clickable icons. You can also include the type of cervical fluid your body is producing.
- It only costs $1.99.
If you've ever read Vitti's book WomanCode: Perfect Your Cycle, Amplify Your Fertility, Supercharge Your Sex Drive, and Become a Power Source, the app is an accessible extension syncing the well of information with your cycle.
