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.

How To Focus Less On Who You Attract In Dating & More On Who You Entertain

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"
