Comments: The free Period Tracker Clue app offers menstrual cycle and symptom tracking in an easy to-use format. The app is well designed and includes customisable symptom tracking. It also offers optional notifications on fertile window, ovulation and periods. Users can log many other options including exercise, weight, sex and contraception to develop a comprehensive health record. Additional features available to subscribers include pregnancy tracking and more in-depth articles.
Safety concerns: No.
New Zealand relevance: This app is largely relevant to New Zealand users. (However, some forms of contraceptives mentioned in the information sections are not available here, and the recommended pap smear age range differs from that of New Zealand.)
