Have you checked out Libresse’s period tracker app, Periodical?
It’s a great way to make managing your periods easier. You can do clever things like track your cycle, giving you more control over symptoms like cramps and PMS (premenstrual syndrome). You can even sync it to your social life, so you know in advance how your cycle’s going to impact it. Meaning you can plan for it, minimise the hassle of your periods and get on with living your life.
If you’re not sure what period tracker apps do or how they work, it’s a bit like having your own personalised period calendar in one handy place. With Periodical you just key in your own personal data – start and finish dates of your period, when the symptoms occur, etc – and use the settings to get the tracker to work exactly the way you want. Once you’ve set the reminders, the app lets you know what’s coming up and when, without you needing to check anything. This means you’ve always got sanitary towels on you exactly when you need them and painkillers at the ready for when the cramps start.
