Keeping track of your menstrual cycle is an important way to keep an eye on your health. Knowing when your next cycle starts does not only help you to be prepared, it is also useful when you are trying to conceive or when you are living in conditions such as PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and endometriosis.
During your period, you can record your flow levels and symptoms such as cramps or headaches in the Cycle Tracking app. When you log information about your cycle, the app predicts when your next period begins and when you will ovulate, and then generates notifications on your iPhone and / or Apple Watch.
You can also record fertility statistics, such as basal body temperature or ovulation test results. The app uses this information to create a fertility window – the few days in the month when you're most likely to get pregnant. The Apple Health iPhone App gives you an overview of your cycle and can log symptoms directly from your Apple Watch.
Apple's Cycle Tracking follows a very similar model to other menstrual tracking apps, such as: B. Clue and Eve You use the data you enter to predict when your period will arrive and when you will ovulate.
