Are apps a good way to understand my cycle?

The more information that you can get about your cycle, the better. That's really the key to understanding what's actually going on within your body. There are so many apps out there, and they're a great starting point because they tell you what to be looking out for, what to be looking at each day and what to be aware of.

So they really raise your self awareness within what's happening within your body, outside of those, like 'today i'm bleeding' 'Today i've got ovulation pain.' They really raise your awareness of other things that are to do with your menstrual cycle. Personally, I prefer a paper tracker because it gives me the freedom to only track the information that's really important to me.

Some apps have an emphasis on fertility. If that's something that's important to you, then absolutely research into an app that tracks fertility for you. If it's something that's potentially triggering to you, then that's something to stay away from.

So with a paper tracker, you might find less triggering topics for yourself. So again, I would say, with apps, do your research before you sign up to anything in particular. But ultimately, how you track is completely personal. What works for me might not work for you, and there isn't necessarily a right or wrong method of tracking.

Just get tracking, really and see what works well for you. And happy tracking.
