Tracking your period is important, and technology is making it easy.
Ladies, we need to understand our menstrual cycle and all the mood swings, physical symptoms and chocolate cravings that go along with it.
Changes in women’s menstrual cycle is often the first sign something is amiss with our health; whether we’re just really stressed and our body is telling us to slow down, or something more serious.
Aside from the health aspect of things, honestly there is nothing worse than deciding to wear a really nice pair of white underwear and then getting your period unexpectedly.
There are almost too many apps to choose from out there so it’s important you choose the right app for you.
Here at B.B, we have done the research and put together the 3 best apps that make tracking your period fun, insightful and simple.
1) Flo Period Tracker
Flo is free to download and easy to use.
The app gives you the options to add weight changes, your moods, sex drive and any other symptoms.
After you’ve logged any changes that you are experiencing, this app provides you with the science as to why you’re feeling angry or have a high sex drive.
After a while this app will also give you personalised daily health insights as it gets to know your cycle.
2) Eve Period Tracker
Eve is free, is sex positive and an all-round femme space.
