The Best Period & Ovulation Tracker Apps In The Game

Women's Health

I am officially off of birth control.


But it's not because I'm joining the growing number of women who are liberating themselves from the hormonal contraceptive and throwing it out one pack or NuvaRing at a time. It's really just because I ran out and don't have the desire to keep up with it.

I don't think I experienced a ton of side effects that were unbearable, but I do like the idea of being free of it and whatever side effects, no matter how insignificant, it brought along with it. Still, given a few current situations, I don't know that I can say right now is the best time to add kids into the mix.

So, after doing a ton of research, I found that tracking ovulation is the key. Because as I learned (really late in life), ovulation is the key to all things conception. But if you're not quite sure how to track it, or need a fool-proof method, these ovulation apps will keep up with your cycle and ovulation time frames even when you can't.

I have to point out there's really no contraceptive that's 100% guaranteed, but at least these apps can serve as a way to lower your chances of conceiving without going crazy:

1.Flo

This is an app that I can personally attest to. I've used it for a little more than a year, so it has had plenty of time to get to know my body just as well as I do. The app sync dates of when I'll start my period and of course when I'm ovulating.

We pretty much go together now.

I felt comfortable depending on this app as an ovulation tracker after I realized it had my period dates down to a T. I also love that it doesn't just tell me the day I'm most likely ovulating, but also lets me know the chances of getting pregnant on three different levels: there's the low chance (because I don't think any app can tell you that there's no chance of you conceiving), a chance, and a high chance. So I feel very comfortable getting it in when it tells me I have a low chance of getting pregnant. So far, so good.

I’m sure a high percentage of people who chose to click this article either are fixers, former fixers, or maybe they want to understand why fixers feel the need to make it their responsibility to change everyone. Well, for one, barely anyone who fits the bill knows why they do what they do until it exhausts them—like myself. I have been a fixer for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved fighting for the underdog. Something about being needed for the betterment of people’s lives has always felt very fulfilling to me. That is until I’d invested so much in many close relationships that it backfired on me. And like many fixers, I would question how I could have offered so much, yet people treated me anyhow in the end?

When I first heard about Harlem, the new Amazon series about four Black girlfriends in the city, I admit, I wasn't a fan. There, I said it. I'm a child of the golden era of Girlfriends, Living Single, Friends, Moesha, Sex and the City, and The L Word. My friends and I were real-life offspring of these constructs who had a lot in common with the women of those shows. Even after enjoying a season of the similar new Showtime series Run the World, I'd had enough of stories about friends "navigating their way through" their 20s, or 30s, or 40s. I loved these shows, but thought to myself, "Why do we need a Harlem? Can't we tell other stories?"

As someone who has always considered themselves beautiful at any size, I can't say that I have always loved my body. Sure, there have been moments where I thought I was the sexiest thing walking. But for the most part, all I saw when I looked in the mirror were flaws. My thighs were always too big. Butt full of dimples from cellulite. Boobs always in the way. And my arms too jiggly.
