Yikes!  I’ve never heard of it, but that sounds scary! 

Are you pretty regular?  maybe just putting a note in a planner or desk calander you use – a little red dot or heart or something on the date you should be expecting it?

I’m using the PinkPad app, and so far I like it. That does sound a bit scary, but I guess it’s better to have a record of how your cycle is behaving/changing than not!

Unless you are a really regular 28-day cycle, an App like that would freak me out.  Before I was on the Pill, my cycles ranged from 21 days to 32 days and from month to month, there was no way to tell what length it would be.

I’d try just marking on your calendar each time you start and then you can count 4 weeks ahead to get an idea of when you would start again.  That’s what I did with my really ireagular periods (although I couldn’t use it to predict – just more to keep track).

I use something similar, P Tracker Lite (free version!). It gives you a projected start date, ovulation calendar, and a “period log” to record moods & symptoms, which I never do… My cycle has ranged from 26-29 days according to the app, so I wouldn’t be too worried. I agree about hating when it says you’re late ::shudders::

I use it (or did prior to being knocked up) but I really liked it.  I have always been super regular but I have never been super good at remembering when I was about to start so it was very useful.  My husband always knew when my cycles were but I didn’t (I can be a tad forgetful).

I also really enjoyed using the weight tracker part of it (except when the weight tracker line started going up instead of down).  And I also like that is predicted my aunt flow for the next year so it helped when planning vacations.

@Neva: Yeah – but like I said – even if it averages your cycles, that doesn’t really help predict anything unless you’re pretty regular.

@MissLakeBum: That’s what I’m using, too! Mine always says I’m 3 days late. But I never freak out/think I’m pregnant because I’m on BC and that’s just the way my cycle is!

I use FMC. Or that’s what it’s called on my iphone so it’s not so obvious.

It’s fertility tracking app. It’s great if you chart.  I think you can link your fertilyfriend account to it too.  I’m not TTC now but I know when I do start or when I’m pregnant, this will come in handy.

I’ll check out iPeriod but I think the alerts would freak me out, too.

I use MyDays, which is similar. I was suprised it’s ended up being accurate within a day for the last two months!

I LOVE iPeriod! I have fairly irregular periods, or at least I thought I did until I started keeping track using IP. I think it’s fantastic!

@iHeartTwinkies:Agree about predicting periods! I used it when we planned to go away over the holidays. So helpful!

Also, since I’m farrrrrrrrrr away from TTC, it helps me to know when to be extra careful and double up protection because it shows when you’re ovulating. Love it!
