Okay Ladies this is probably silly but I need help. I just stopped taking my birth control pills and I need to know the best tracking app. I’ve been on the pills for so long I never had to even think about it.
My doctor thinks I have way too much estrogen which is causing girly problems so it was either switch to a lower estrogen bc pill or go off the pill. I choose to go off because there is no generic 3 month version of low estrogen seasonale and it would have been pretty expensive for the non-generic even with my insurance. Also since we will hopefully start TTC in the next year I figure now was probably a good time to go off BC. We will just use condoms until we are ready to actually TTC and if something were to happen and I got pregnant that would be okay too.
So what do you ladies reccomend? It’s been so long since I didn’t know exactly when to expect my period.
Thanks in advance!

I use Period Planner Lite. I’m happy with it. It’s fairly instinctive and adapts itself based on what you input. You can also track your moods and physical symptoms like acne, cramps, aches, etc as well as add notes. There’s a full version that you can pay for, but the free one has been working well for me!

@bakerella: Thanks I will check that one out.

My Days is amazing. You enter when you take your BC, when you had sex, and when your period ends. It predicts your ovulation which is nice to know when you are and are not most fertile (we are NOT trying to conceive). I like it because it keeps track of everything in a calendar format and you can look back on patterns. I’ve been using it for 2 years and I have my period down to the day every time.

I use iPeriod on my iPod and I love it! There is a free version, but I bought the $1.99 version. You can track lots of different things including symptoms, TTC stuff (don’t know much about that since I haven’t used it), and emotions.

I use Period Tracker Lite, which is similar to the app Bakerella uses. It also has great a feature that plots out your cycle for upcoming months.

I used to use fertility friend one, but I switched to iPeriod since I like it better.

I also use My Days and I love it, not that I’m planning to get pregnant anytime soon, but it’s nice to know and to have for after the wedding 🙂
