It is almost that time of the month where Aunt Flow will visit you again. Wouldn’t it be awesome if you have some sort of technology or app that can track your period? After all, it can be very inconvenient when your period decides to drop by for a visit unexpectedly.
“Will she be early? Or is she going to be late again?”
Here are some reasons why you should start using a period app to track your period.
Period apps are very convenient and easy to use. They can be downloaded to your phone, or you can even use them on your computer. In the past, we used to have to note down our period dates on the calendar to track and predict when our next period is due. It saves us from the hassle of manual calculation which can never be as accurate as technology these days.
2. It is easier to find out more about your period
With period apps, you can now note down your period patterns and habits to know more about your periods. How much are you bleeding? How heavy is your flow? Or for how long are you bleeding? Knowing these traits can help you identify any form of illness in advance if there are any abnormalities in your period.
3. Know your body
When you find out more about your period, at the same time, you get to know more about your body and the different type of symptoms that shows up before your period comes. For example, whether you are experiencing swelling in your boobs, having a headache, or feeling moody, you will know as you can note it down and track its pattern every month.
4. Increases your chance of pregnancy
Maybe you are a potential wife looking for a window to be a mummy?
We all know how hard family planning is and missing out on the correct timing will only frustrate you as you have to yet wait again for the next month to try again. Using period apps can track your fertility window. For married couples that are planning for a family, knowing when the fertility window is very important as it tells them when is the best possible time to try to conceive which increases the chances of getting pregnant.
